Just quoting what my ophthalmologist told me last spring.

Okay, let's see:  If someone's optic nerve is shot, why can't an artificial
sight system be created--optic nerve and retina?  It may not be just like
the natural ones but shoot, I'd try it!  If we can do all of this neat
computer and miniaturization stuff--why not?  Hey, it could be wireless
even!  It should be able to be in color.  Hey, there are robots with
artificial vision--and that does not depend on any natural optic nerve.
