These adorable pictures show a tiny lamb which has to wear sheep sunglasses to protect its eyes.

Three-week-old Flash 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.
