Based on Geordi's conversations with Doctors Crusher and Pulaski in TNG: Encounter at Farpoint, Part I and TNG: Loud As A Whisper it would seem that the use of this technology is vanishingly rare. Sufficiently so that a Starfleet doctor with two decades of medical experience hasn't even seen one in real life and a renowned specialist in surgical research has only encountered a few similar cases in all of her years of practice.
CRUSHER: Naturally I've heard of your case. The visor implants you wear ...
LAFORGE: Is a remarkable piece of bio-electronic engineering by which I quote see much of the EM spectrum ranging from simple heat and
infrared through radio waves et cetera, et cetera, and forgive me if
I've said and listened to this a thousand times before.

PULASKI: It's possible to install optical devices which look like normal eyes, and would still give you about the same visual range as
LAFORGE: Done? You say almost. How much reduction?
PULASKI: Twenty percent. There is another option. I can attempt to regenerate your optic nerve, and, with the help of the replicator,
fashion normal eyes. You would see like everyone else.
LAFORGE: Wait a minute. I was told that was impossible.
PULASKI: I've done it twice, in situations somewhat similar to yours. Geordi, it would eliminate the constant pain you are under. Why
are you hesitating?
