Bionic Eye Project To Bring Back Eyesight To Visually Impaired (VIDEO)




The Monash Vision Group’s bionic eye project is aimed at creating a pair of usual-looking glasses fitted with two digital cameras: one to capture images of the surroundings and the other – inside – to follow the movement of the eyeballs. The digital images are to be transmitted wirelessly from the glasses to a small implant in the wearer’s brain, which is to stimulate the visual cortex to allow a visually impaired person to “see” what the glasses are turned to. According to the Al Jazeera report, the goal of the research team at Monash University (Melbourne, Australia) is to cure up to 85% percent of clinically blind people, including the capability to bring back vision to partially blind people without intruding with the sight they have.
