Surgery Saves Man’s Sight With Bionic Eyes

Grace Higgins | March 17th, 2019

One blind man has felt the miracle that is medical breakthroughs and modern science. John Jameson from Texas had been blind for over 40 years due to a terrible infection that resulted in the loss of his vision. Jameson eventually gave up on trying to restore his vision, deciding to accept his fate of being blind and try to move on with his life. Though now he is a completely new man, replenished and revisioned after a revolutionary surgery which saw a bionic eye being inserted into his eye socket to restore his vision.

Such a rare procedure had to seek approval from the FDA and various medical boards before being allowed to happen in the United States. And in fact, worldwide, there is only a slim handful of doctors with the skill to complete such a dangerous and complex surgery. Jameson’s wife first learned about the surgery while researching and located a couple of surgeons who could make perform the needed operation in Louisiana.

Jameson was ecstatic when he found out that there was a team in the United States capable of saving his eyes and restoring his vision. After talking to Dr. Shelby a team of medical staff was put together to ensure this groundbreaking surgery happened successfully. And now after 40 years of darkness, Jameson’s vision has been restored with the help of a freshly implanted bionic eye.

Once it was implanted Jameson did experience some double vision and that his brain had difficulty with the understanding the vision provided by the implant. Thought with time his sight is restoring and his vision grows clearer every day. An amazing accomplishment for the medical world, to think soon we may be entering a time where blindness is no longer a disability.

Jameson advised his vision returning is like being a kid at Christmas again, you see the lights and the Christmas trees & immediately are filled with happiness and joy.
