from 9.20 am Eyes
Many people would regard sight as the most precious of all the senses but often have little idea how the eye works. Eyes are complicated pieces of machinery which pick up light patterns; these are then changed into information for our brains. So it's important to know the rudiments of basic eye care and to be aware of the things that can go wrong with our eyes. Why do most people get short-sighted in middle age? What makes a child ' squint '?
In the studio to answer your questions will be a leading eye surgeon and Dr Cyril Howell , an optician.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
