Bionic eye lets blind man see his wife for the first time in 10 years

68-year-old Allen Zderad's new bionic eye has allowed him to see his wife for the first time in more than a decade.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota implanted the device, which involved inserting 60 electrodes into the retina, allowing images to be transferred directly from the camera to the optic nerve. Not quite the stuff of The Six Million Dollar Man, but it's certainly a huge step forward.
