The bionic eye is a visual prosthesis that restores the vision fully or partly in blind people suffering from retinitis pigmentosa and macular degenerations. Many bionic eyes have completed human clinical trials and become functional but still need newer technical approaches to make it available to all people. A bionic eye illuminates the dark world of blind people. To date, many bionic eyes were developed like Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System, Artificial silicon retina and many more, whereas Gennaris Bionic vision System is the recent advanced bionic eye. In our paper, we have covered the basic structure and working of the bionic eye, projects on the bionic eye to date, vision through the bionic eye, implants and restoration of sight, limitations, and the future of the bionic eye.
