Little lamb has to wear special sunglasses to protect his sore eye

Three-week-old Flash the lamb has to wear has to wear ultraviolet sunglasses to protect one of his eyes.

Flash, who is being raised on a Norfolk farm, suffers from uveitis, a painful condition which makes his right eye sore, red and ultra-sensitive to bright light.

Since being diagnosed at three days old, the little lamb has undergone a course of antibiotics and eye drops to reduce the inflammation.

But looking at the sun is still painful, so letting Flash out to graze during the day without eye protection is not an option.
