Eyes

Dr. Alice Roberts undergoes a thorough eye examination in this episode of her tour of the body's major organs. She puts her own body to the test, beginning with a 250-foot climb up a sheer cliff face - blindfolded. She also meets Sarah, who has a family history of eye problems, and sets out to discover if her computer- and TV-dependent lifestyle is affecting her sight. In addition, Dr. Roberts investigates whether carrots really are good for the eyes and whether the sunglasses available today offer enough protection from sun damage. She also checks out the pros and cons of modern laser eye surgery, and gets a firsthand account of living with vision impairment
