Blind person restored vision with artificial eye detail

Israeli doctors have successfully transplanted an artificial eye piece - the cornea - into a blind person.

Thanks to this, the man's eyesight returned.

The corneal implant is placed in a pocket between the conjunctiva and the sclera of the eye. The first person to undergo such an operation was a 78-year-old man who lost his sight ten years ago.

Earlier, donor corneas were used to restore vision, but like any donor organs, it is difficult to get them. The artificial cornea was the solution to the problem.

It was created from a porous material that looks likeon the extracellular matrix, writes "N + 1". A transplant of such an artificial part is even better than a real organ transplant: the first one takes root faster and cannot cause infection.

The operation to install the implant took an hour. After rehabilitation, the patient was able to see people and read the text.
