First dutch blind patient can see again

Today, the dutch newspaper Trouw published an article in which it reports about the first blind dutch patient being able to see again. This is made possible by a retinal implant developed by the company Second Sight, which saw its implant called Argus II being approved by the FDA this spring. As with most types of implants, it is only able to restore the original functioning of the biological senses with a limited resolution, urging a further improvement of the implant. Nonetheless, this is a huge step forward in improving the quality of life of people suffering from a reduced or even complete failure of their biological senses.
