John Jameson of Tatum, Texas lost his sight to an infection. Now, 40 years later, he can see again with his new bionic eye.

It’s a story that Jameson himself couldn’t have imagined 40 years ago when he lost his sight to an infection. However, 40 years later, technology has finally caught up, and after a transplant in Shreveport, Louisiana, Jameson has begun to see.

As Jameson told the Texas Standard, “Well, my wife has been following it. It’s been in development for several years, and it now has FDA approval.” His wife, Deborah, has been right next to him every single day for years, even though he was blind when they met.

His outlook on the world will make you thankful for own vision. As he sees more and more every day, adjusting to the bionic eye, he says, “When I wake up in the morning, I love to see nature waking up. It’s like a miracle.”

And indeed, it is.
