  • Restoring Sight Lost From Diabetes


    My nephew has diabetes and has lost his sight. He can now only see shadows if close. Are there any options that could restore his sight?


    Unfortunately, there are no options to restore sight at this time. However, there is very exciting work being done in the area of artificial vision, using a variety of sophisticated technologies to bypass the damaged retina and transmit visual images directly to the brain. I think we will see great breakthroughs in the next few years.
