Bionic Eye Lets Blind Man See Wife For The First Time In A Decade
Feb 25, 2015
The Mayo Clinic reached out to Zderad to help him gain his sight back. They gave him a bionic eye, which would allow him to see his wife of 45 years, Carmen, for the first time in a decade. Zderad is the 15th person in the United States to receive this device and the first in his state.
68-year-old Allen Zderad of Minnesota has not seen his wife in 10 years. Working as a chemist, Zderad began losing his eyesight about 20 years ago from an incurable degenerative eye disease. He was officially declared blind about 10 years later.
