Dr. Robert Devenyi, the University Health Network‘s ophthalmologist-in-chief, pioneers a technology to restore sight to the blind. It’s called the Argus II a.k.a. ‘The Bionic Eye’.

Until now, if you were one of the 1.5 million people around the world who suffer from Retinitis Pimentosa (a degenerative eye disease) you could expect a future of vision loss and, often, total blindness. With no cure and no hope for treatment, enter the Argus II, a bionic eye that has shown tremendous promise in clinical trials.
