Man Sees His Wife For The First Time In A Decade Thanks To Bionic Eye
We wanted to share with you a pretty cool story that aired on CBS News a couple of weeks ago about a man who saw his wife for the first time in a decade, thanks to a bionic eye.
The man, Allen Zderad, who is 68 and suffers from retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that causes deterioration of the part of the retina that turns light into vision, and eventually leads to total blindness was fitted with a bionic eye that allowed him to see his wife for the first time in a decade. At the sight of his wife, he broke down in tears and laughter, it was really cool.
Here is the video of the CBS report:
