An advanced artifical[sic] eye. With its biogel nerve-link, internal signal pre-processor, and wide-spectrum sensors, it is better than a biological eye in almost every way. A lattice-dust healing system allows it to recover from damage.
- TechHediff, Bionic
A Bionic eye is an artificial eye that can replace a natural one through implant surgery. Unlike their natural counterparts, bionic eyes do not scar. They have 125% efficiency, which on average increases a colonist's sight by 12.5% for each one installed.Since the game gives a greater weighting on the more capable part when calculating sight, with it contributing to 75% of a pawn's sight capability, installing a single bionic eye increases sight by 19%, and a second increases it by 6% to the expected 125%.
They require a crafting skill of 8.
Bionic eyes can be useful for gunners or snipers who will shoot enemies from a distance as a boost to sight can increase accuracy. Bionic eyes can also be used to "cure" cataracts in aged colonists.
As with all bionics, it will give a mood buff to anyone with the Transhumanist trait and a heavy penalty to anyone with the Body purist trait.
