An electrician was left with stars in his eyes after an electric shock left him with some unusually shaped cataracts.

The 42-year-old US electrician went to doctors a month after he received a 14,000v shock to his left shoulder, but only because his eyesight had deteriorated.

He has since had the cataracts removed but doctors still aren't sure why they were star-shaped.

The case is being reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.
