British man Chris James, 54, suffered from a hereditary illness called retinitis pigmentosa 22 years ago and became completely blind in the left eye while only being able to detect strong light with his right. On March 22, he became one of the two first men in the world to receive a bionic eye. Doctors from Oxford University Hospitals and King’s College Hospital implanted into his eyeball beneath his retina a 3X3 millimeter microchip developed by Germany‘s Retina Implant.
