Are there visual eye implants for people who lost their eyes to trauma?

Not yet. The "implants" that are currently in use for replacement of injured eyes that have become blind are cosmetic in nature. They are quite good at duplicating the appearance of the uninjured eye, and many have good apparent eye movements too. As of this time, there is not an implant that can replace the injured eye with an eye that has vision.

Will there ever be visual eye implants for people who lost their eyes in a accident?

Not soon. The eye connects to the brain with a nerve containing about 1.2 million fibers. There is no known way to cause one nerve to re-establish a connection let along a million. So eye transplants are a thing of the future. If the eyes are intact (but blind) some work is being done on microarray light receptive implants which might help. Stem cells might also help. But no quick fix yet. Read more...

Can you give me some information on eye implants?

Need specific info. "eye implants" can mean different things. Most likely, you are referring to intraocular lens implants which are routinely used following removal of a cataract.

Are there colored eye implants available that will correct astigmatism and nearsightedness? I'm thinking about eye implants so that I won't have to wear contacts any longer. I'd also like to change my dull brown eye color to green. Is such a procedure pos

Colored . Colored implants are offered for injuries for the eye on limited basis through fda humanitarian exemption, but they don't correct vision. They are experimental and trials have been yet to be started in the United States for elective cosmetic reasons. You would need to have lasik to correct vision and the implants later to change the color of the eye. There is a company working on laser that would turn brown eyes closer to blue eyes by removing the brown pigment. This procedure is probably 3-4 years away to the start of clinical trials.
