I See With My Bionic Eyes

Age-related macular degeneration is responsible for severe vision loss in developed countries. When our eyes fail, the world slips into a blur and darkness, and life dims. English surgeons however, recently brought light to the blind by installing bionic eyes into an 80-year old patient who suffered severe AMD. Dr Kenneth Fong helps us unravel the technology behind bionic eyes and eye health in general.
