In the United States, the FDA has approved just one commercially available bionic eye system. The device, called the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System, was developed by a California-based company called Second Sight Medical Products.
The Argus II has been used to restore some level of visual perception to hundreds of individuals with severe retinitis pigmentosa — a disease that affects one in 5,000 people. According to Second Sight, the Argus II device has been implanted in the eyes of more than 350 individuals worldwide.
