Eyesight is among the valued and most important senses. Sad to say, the loss of vision is something that disturbs lots of people around the world. Not having the ability to see anything is a idea, but blindness may be made a thing previously by new technologies. 

John Jameson has suffered from blindness for about 40 years to an extremely strong illness. His wife came across the concept of getting a bionic eye installed to see if his vision could be once more restored by his eyesight. This type of process has just received approval by the Food and Drug Administration here in the USA. Jameson had this operation done in Shreveport, 11, month. Since the process, Jameson shared his sight keeps getting better over the years since his mind continues to adjust although that since he had the operation he has suffered from double vision. "When I awaken in the morningI love to see nature waking up," he added,"If you are a kid, you would wake up on Christmas morning, and you'd walk down and watch the tree lights and the presents and everything -- the joy that you get when that occurs. And today that has been occurring to me each day, as every day that I wake up I could see more and more." These procedures are fresh with the operation being completed in 2014. This very first Food and Drug Administration accepted procedure had an Argus two synthetic retina that's basically a sheet of electrodes that are attached to the eye which works using a specially made pair of eyeglasses which translates the perspective of the outside world into a picture that is then beamed into the retina. This sort of eye doesn't provide the vision that we encounter, but it makes a set of patterns that are created by flashes of light that outlines to be distinguished and allows shapes. Although technology which was used on Jameson's type has not been released, there is a chance that Argus 2 was used.

Argus 2 was made to combat advanced cases of retinitis pigmentosa which is an eye condition that causes harm to lining of the retina which encases the sensitive cells. On sending rays of light as electric impulses to the brain through the optic nerve 20, these cells operate. In order to make sure their eyes have completely formed For someone to be considered qualified to receive this kind of implant, they need to be 25 years old. They need to also have experienced vision and their eyesight must be quite so bad that utilizing this gadget could be beneficial for them. Second Sight Medical Products, the California based expects to one day be in a position to deal with other vision defects, but either way this innovation is still a fantastic accomplishment for the business. Hopefully Jameson has been improvements within his vision, and since Grace Shen in the National Eye Institute stated,"This is only the start. We have a lot of exciting items sitting in the wings."
