BBC Look North and BBC East Midlands Today told the story of how world leading corneal surgeon Professor Harminder Dua used Omnigen to change the course of Ian Robb’s life by restoring his sight.

Happy patient Ian Robb with Professor Harminder Dua.

The camera crew dropped by NuVision’s laboratories to investigate the innovative technology behind Omnigen and interview our CEO Dr Andrew Hopkinson who conceived this treatment whilst researching amniotic membrane for his PhD. “Up to two hundred people could have their vision restored by using the amniotic membrane (the sac protecting a baby before birth) from one baby’s delivery” explained Dr Hopkinson, who is aiming to widen the access of Omnigen to more hospitals across the UK very soon.

Labs, Camera, Action!

The news item was broadcast on the 23rd June and followed up by a second feature illustrating how veterinary surgeons are also using Omnigen on pets  and large animals for sight restoring therapies.
