Man can see again – level 2

02-03-2015 15:00

An American from Minnesota began to lose his sight around 20 years ago. In 2005, he was completely blind. His disease was serious, and doctors could not help him. However, ten years later, the man can see again!

Doctors gave him a special device. They call it a bionic eye, but it looks like sunglasses. It sees instead of the man’s eyes and it sends the information to his brain.

Someone filmed the moment when the man saw for the first time in ten years. It is a very emotional video.

Difficult words: sight (the ability to see), device (an electronic thing), bionic (electronic).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

It is great, isn't it?
