image for Invisible Man Admits "My Eyesight Isn't What It Used To Be"
Can you spot the invisible man in this picture?

The invisible man today spoke openly of his struggle with failing eyesight. In a moving interview I.M. (as he is known to his adoring fans) bared his soul. In fact he pretty much bared everything.

"I first noticed something was wrong one morning when I was shaving. I looked in the mirror but I was struggling to focus properly. I tried going to an opticians but he wouldn't see me. Well, ok, he couldn't see me. In the end I had to go to Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. I found it really hard to get there. I ended up in a Bavarian Bar on the City Road by mistake. No wonder there were no eye charts."

I.M. has now been issued with a pair of Ronnie Barker's old glasses. This has led to him being recognised more often in public, which can be a bad thing if you are a professional invisible act. He is planning to move to contact lenses although they are going to be a real hassle putting them in.
