Bionic Cornea Could Cure Blindness

Picture Of Bionic Eye ArtworkTechnological advancements have led to the development of bionics for those with lost limbs or hearing impairments. In the near future, we could see the use of bionic corneas for curing blindness. There are several projects underway to develop a functional bionic cornea.

One example of a bionic eye is the "Argus II." The device is surgically implanted in the retina; video glasses transmit to the implant allowing people with retinitis pigmentosa to see their surroundings, objects, and large texts. While the development of a bionic cornea could cure blindness one day, such devices will likely be costly.
