Artificial retina restores sight to the blind


First Posted: 3/5/2010

Attorney Dean Lloyd sits at his office in Palo Alto, California, February 12, 2010. Lloyd, who went blind from retinitis pigmentosa, had experimental electrodes implanted in the back of his right eye. Lloyd wears black sunglasses containing a tiny camera and transmitter, a video processor and battery pack on his belt. Lloyd is among only 10 people in the United States to undergo the procedure.
