Bionic eye

An advanced artificial 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.

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 results in a 25% improvement to the colonist's sight if two are 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 18.75%, and a second increases it by 6.25% to the expected 125%.


Bionic eyes can be crafted at a fabrication bench for 15 plasteel and 4 advanced components or purchased from traders. They require a crafting skill of 8.
