The first man to be inserted into a 3D-printed prosthetic eye

An Australian recently made history as the first person to be inserted into an artificial eye obtained thanks to 3D printing technology. Moordfields Eye Hospital, where the operation was performed, was reported in a press release.

The patient who had the surgery performed by specialists from a London medical facility was Stephen Firzi. An IT engineer from Melbourne sustained a severe eye injury when he was seven years old. Fourteen years later, the Australian has completely lost the ability to see in the affected eye.
