USC Roski Eye Institute Experts Featured in PBS Documentary: “Sight: The Story of Vision”

USC PBS Documentary Sight The Story of VisionBoth Rohit Varma, MD, MPH, and Mark Humayun, MD, PhD, co-director of the USC Roski Eye Institute, will be featured interviews in the upcoming PBS documentary, “SIGHT: The Story of Vision.”

Narrated by Sir Elton John, the documentary was filmed over the past two years on six continents and tells the journey of humanity that discovered the science, technology and medicine that allows us to understand how sight works, cure eye diseases and correct vision.

In addition to the documentary, there is an accompanying online educational content being prepared called “Second Screen.” USC Roski Eye Institute ophthalmologist Lisa Olmos de Koo, MD, MBA, and her Argus II patient, Terry Byland —the only person in the world to have an Argus implant in each eye—were interviewed for the online presentation.

The USC Roski Eye Institute will co-host a special broadcasting event in Los Angeles when the documentary airs on PBS later this year.
