Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
Life was going just fine for Terry Byland. He had a good job, nice family, a good middle class life. And then got word that within a matter of years he would be completely blind. Life as he knew it was over. But then a new technology came along, one that he is helping to advance. It gives him back some of his sight and offers a bit of light at the end of the tunnel. Val Zavala has his story. preceding was from KCET PBS web site.
Currently the technology only helps them to see light and dark its sorta like black and white but blured but it appears very likely this is leading the way to bring technologys that will lead to much more advanced procedures that will make it possible to restore site in color to the blind. It may take another decade or two but this technology is very viable. – Ian Bach
