‘The Implantable Miniature Telescope is a micro-sized precision telescopic device, which has been developed to provide improved vision and quality of life for individuals with moderate to severe vision loss caused by dysfunction of the macula, a specialized area of the retina that is responsible for detailed central vision.’

And in other news, scientists have apparently grown artificial corneas using partially blind pigs.

‘CORNEAS have successfully been grown around protein and plastic scaffolds planted into the eyes of partially blind pigs, scientists revealed yesterday. The grafts regenerated the cells necessary to make a functioning cornea, including nerves.’

Great body mechanics aren’t we?
