Bionic Eye Prototype Implanted In Australia

Bionic Vision Australia (BVA) researchers have announced the success of their first retinal implant trial in a human. Dianne Ashworth blinded by retinitis pigmentosa, had the prototype implant placed behind her retina by the surgeons, and a small wire installed to a connector behind her ear. After the operation she could already see flashes. Researchers plan to test the implant and further develop a vision processor and an external camera. We’ve told you about the type of implants using a video camera on head band to provide some vision before. Next, BVA plans to test an improved 1024 electrode implant (present prototype has 24 electrodes) able to offer facial recognition and reading large print by 2014.
