KUSA - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first ever artificial retina, or "bionic eye" to give the blind limited vision.
Users wear glasses with a video camera, which transmits visual data to the brain.
The device is called Argus Two-- and is made by "Second Sight Medical Products."
It's nowhere near full vision, but the first users say it's a great start.
It should be available later this year. The cost is estimated at around $100,000.
