Previously blind patients who receive the recently FDA-approved Argus II bionic eye system will regain some degree of functional sight. The retinal implant technology, developed and distributed by Second Sight, can improve quality of life for patients who have lost functional vision due to retinitis pigmentosa, a disease that causes retinal cells to die.

We are not machines. But we wish so much to become one. Help to the suffering will come with love and compassion. Not with artificial components. One can lose an eye and still be happy. But a man with 20/20 vision could still be utterly miserable without love and caring… A life in the dark can be glorious. A life in the light can be full of darkness…
