Second Sight's Argus II is a FDA-approved bionic eye invention that is said to improve the sight of the visually impaired. The revolutionary product is a device that is mounted to one's glasses and is equipped with a miniature camera that captures a scene.

Once captured, its video is transferred and transmitted wirelessly to the product's accompanying eye implant. Once given a series of corresponding signals, one's retina cells are stimulated, resulting in an image that would otherwise be impossible to see.

After getting used to Second Sight's Argus II bionic eye, patients will learn to interpret visual patterns in a way that mimics real sight. This high tech concept is a revolutionary invention in the world of vision repair and will transform the optometry field. Thanks to the product, the blind are no longer limited to permanent sight loss and have hope toward a brighter future.
