Steve Farz is the first person to get a 3D-prosthetic eye

Steve Varz will become the first person in the world to receive an artificial eye produced using a 3D printer.

Farz is undergoing surgery at Moorfield Hospital, east of the British capital, London, on Thursday.

The new eye is expected to become the beginning of a technology that provides better eyes, and is more effective than the usual artificial eyes.

The new technology is expected to reduce the waiting time in British hospitals for patients who need to have artificial eyes fitted in half, bringing the waiting period to about three weeks only, instead of a month and a half.
