    I'm sure the side effects would outweigh any benefit. Just like in all those TV commercials. Your vision would improve slightly but your arms and legs fall off.

    Blind Mice Given Sight After Device Cracks Retinal Code
    Aug 13, 2012 - Blind mice had their vision restored with a device that helped diseased retinas send signals to the brain, according to a study that may lead to new prosthetic technology for millions of sight-impaired people.

    There was a Twilight Zone episode about this very thing. Joan Crawford played the wealthy woman who could have everything except the one thing she wanted - to see the lights of the city.

    Naturally, someone came up with a way for her to do that. The catch was that it was temporary.

    She arranged to be alone so she could enjoy her short time of looking at the bright lights and sure nuff, when the drug kicked in, there was a huge black out.

    The whole city went dark. So dark, it looked just like it did when she couldn't see.

    ==============
    I've always disliked the lights of a big city and have gone out of my way to live where there are very few lights. **shrug**
