    There are millions of nerve fibers connecting the eye to the brain. For an eye to work, they all have to be connected correctly. Here is what can be done:

    The cornea can be replaced with one form someone who has died. The cornea is the clear structure on the front of the eye.

    There are some electronic devices that can be connected to the eye or to the brain that give some kind of approximation of vision. The give very little detail.

    Possibly in the distant future. But doubtful in this century. I would guess not in our lifetime.

    No. There are some surgeries that can help some types of blindness, but no guarantees of any sort.

    Not yet. Right now, they're working on putting stem cells into the retina so that will solve blindness for some people.

    There are transplants of part of the eye (e.g., corneal transplants) but you can't just spoon out an eyeball and pop another one in. Not how the body works. Many people who are blind have issues with the optical nerve and that's not something that can be transplanted.
