(AP) - Patients who have lost their sight due to a rare disorder may be able to regain some vision using a new implantable device that takes the place of damaged cells inside the eye. The government has approved the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System as the first treatment for an inherited disorder that causes the breakdown of cells in the retina, a membrane inside the eye. Only a small number of patients will be able to get the technology initially. It could be eventually used to treat other vision disorders.
