ANN ARBOR, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A few patients who have lost their eye sight due to a rare disorder are regaining vision thanks to doctors at the University of Michigan.

The Kellogg Eye Center at the school's Ann Arbor campus is the first facility in the U.S. to implant a "bionic eye" since the FDA signed off on it last year.

The eye gives those the ability to see shadows and shapes.

Four such surgeries have been performed at Michigan. A fifth is scheduled for next month.
