Breakthrough 3D Printed Bionic Eye Could Restore or Enhance Sight

Breakthrough 3D Printed Bionic Eye Could Restore or Enhance Sight

For a long time, blindness was an irreversible condition, and that’s still true about many forms of it. If a person’s eyes or vision are damaged badly enough, there’s only so much medical professionals can do to restore function. If a person loses an eye, realistic-looking prosthetics can be created, but they’re for cosmetic purposes […]
