Researchers have developed a mini device that can restore the sight of blind people, especially for those who were hereditary affected by blindness. The “bionic eye” was developed by US-based firm, Second Sight and a Londoner team from Moorfields Eye Hospital began the treatment on UK patients. This treatment is destined to study the technology if it can indeed return sight to blind.
The “bionic eye” is called Argus II and it consists of a camera that sends a signal to an electronic receiver which is implanted in the retina. The scientist are very hopeful that the “bionic eye” will be a success but they warned that it’s very soon know for sure.
