"SF is a controlled way to think and dream about the future."
- Gregory Benford

Artificial Eyes  
  Eyes that are the duplicate of what humans are born with, produced entirely artificially from elements.  

I can't think of an earlier description of the production of artificial eyes and limbs for use in transplantation.

“You cannot see Graham Greene now, Mr. von der Konz.”

“Why not?”

“He is asleep. The shock of the operation was very great. You do not know? We have just given him a pair of new legs, and that lovely girl of his two brand-new eyes. We are very proud of our success.”

“You mean to say that you have restored her sight?”

“Yes. And his legs. That discovery of his father's will be a great boon to mankind. I doubt if I could clearly explain to you the process by which we have grown synthetic tissues in the place of those that were destroyed. It is marvelous ”

“Greetings, Vonnie!” the Flaming Atom called out to me.

“Well, well, Flaming One. You’re a blue-eyed girl now !” I said, and it was true. Her eyes had previously been brown.

“Isn’t it wonderful? Arnold here won’t let me fly In the races this year though. He’s awfully cautious. He says I’m too weak.”
