Doctors make blindness breakthrough

A team of doctors say they made have performed a successful stem cell transplant into the eye of a woman with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). If it works, it could prevent problems for millions of visually-impaired people

AMD is a painless eye condition that causes the loss of central vision, usually in both eyes. Reading becomes difficult, colours appear less vibrant and people's faces are difficult to recognise. Activities such as reading, writing and watching television can become impossible.

AMD currently affects more than 600,000 people in the UK and is the leading cause of blindness

By 2020, it's predicted almost 700,000 people will have late-stage AMD in the UK.

Nearly a million prescriptions for Ritalin and related drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were prescribed last year in the UK - that's more than double the amount of a decade ago. Yet guidelines from NHS watchdog NICE say that it should only be used as a last resort.

The ADHD foundation is calling for more behavioural courses to be offered and says children are being let down by being prescribed drugs "too readily".

Dr Hilary joins us to discuss the findings.
