You might be the agent of change

Many things in this world can make us feel small and insignificant. Corporations grow larger than before. Governments make decisions we disagree with.

But we are not powerless. On the contrary, we hold great power in our hands by how we choose to use the valuable moments of our lives. Maybe you have a cure for loneliness or can ease the suffering of a person. There are many ways to bring joy and healing to our world.

Bionic eyes have been a mainstay of science fiction for decades, but now real-world research is beginning to catch up with far-sighted storytellers. A raft of technologies is coming to market that restore sight to people with different kinds of vision impairment.

Israeli surgeons implanted the world’s first artificial cornea into a bilaterally blind, 78-year-old man. When his bandages were removed, the patient could read and recognise family members immediately. The implant also fuses naturally to human tissue without the recipient’s body rejecting it.

The Waiting Game

We all have heard the cliche that ‘Good Things Come To Those Who Wait’ but not many of us are really fond of waiting.
