Diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition at the age of 31, the former Paralympian went totally blind 17 years ago.
But thanks to the fitting of a bionic eye, the 55-year-old can now see his haul in all its glory.
Mr Reddish â€“ currently the chairman of the British Paralympic Association â€“ told yesterday how a revolutionary retinal chip is enabling him to make out shapes and read a clock face.
The eight-hour procedure to implant an artificial retina brings hope to thousands who suffer with similar conditions.
It costs up to Â£100,000 per patient and builds on previous attempts to produce a bionic eye using a camera and transmitter linked to a pair of glasses as a means of relaying images to the artificial retina.
Mr Reddish is one of nine totally blind UK patients who took part in a trial of the chip at the Oxford University Eye Hospital and Kingâ€™s College Hospital, London.
