What struck me at the time was the inappropriate use of the pinhole by gazing directly at the sun, by three of the patients. For this reason I think it is more helpful to advise people to wear the special glasses, as people are more familiar with their use. It is also safer to glance intermittently rather than to stare for a long period.
One of the incontrovertible facts highlighted by the report is that contrary to popular opinion it is not always raining in Manchester.
