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.
