In brief: Active research

Depends in part on the reason for the blindness.
Electronic light detector arrays are in development for those with retinal light receptor degeneration such as retinitis pigmentosa. Stem cell work may be useful in time as ways to replace non-functional cells. Restoration of vision is an area of active research and new discoveries are widely publicized.
