Seeing is Believing - Part 1

Sometimes you’ve just got to marvel at the brilliance of technology and the ingenuity of the minds behind it. In one of the greatest scientific advances ever, doctors and engineers have developed the bionic eye. Giving the miracle of sight to the blind is now a reality. Although the technology is in its early stages, it is already changing lives. People who have been completely blind for decades are now able to distinguish shapes, light and movement. 60 Minutes is there as a bionic eye is switched on the first time, and a man who’s been blind for 30 years, gets to see his grandchildren for the first time.
