Nanowire retinal implant could restore sight with better resolution

Researchers at UC San Diego have developed a nano-scale retinal implant that could restore sight with ...

Advances in bionic eyes over the past few decades have given blind and visually impaired people new hope of restoring some of their vision. Now engineers have tested a new nano-scale system that could be implanted onto a patient's retina to respond to light by directly stimulating the neurons that send visual signals to the brain. Unlike other systems, the new device wouldn't require any external sensors, and can provide a much higher resolution.
