New device offers hope to people blinded due to incurable eye disorders

Research presented today at the 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology shows promising data about a device that helps people who have lost their vision due to a blinding genetic disease to recognize common objects.

The device, called the Argus II, is the first FDA-approved retinal implant for adults with retinitis pigmentosa.
