Man gets bionic eye, sees wife for first time in a decade

Allen Zderad, 68, hadn't laid eyes on his wife or grandchildren in more than a decade. He has a degenerative eye disease that slowly stole his sight over the course of his life. Recently the power of modern medicine in the form of a bionic eye gave him the ability to see his beautiful family once again.

His wife, Carmen, is his sighted guide. Silver haired with a kind smile, she tries to remember the last time he's seen her face.

"Ten years?" she asks.

"Ten years, but I still kiss her with my eyes closed," Zderad said while laughing.
