Scientists are on the brink of restoring sight to the blind by sending moving images directly to the brain. Thus, Mark Humayun has developed Argus II, commonly known as the bionic eye. According to Niaz (2016) “Mark’s invention is a miracle for people suffering from inherited retinal degenerative disease that leads to blindness in old age”.
