Eye Implant May Help the Blind

Despite the severe deterioration in the rate of important scientific discoveries in some areas others are still making great strides. One technological offshoot of that is shown by the following story:
Many people with advanced macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness in the elderly, can learn to use their eyes in a new way with an implantable telescope, a first-of-its-kind device recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration and on its way to Long Island in coming months.
The Bionic Man can't be far behind, provided Federal degradation of the health sciences doesn't cause them an early death.
