This Bionic Eye Is Claimed To Fully Restore Vision In Blind People, Check It Out

Bionic eye, is an experimental visual device intended to restore functional vision in those suffering from partial or total blindness.


Scientists around the globe have been conducting experiments and researchs to discover a solution for people experiencing visual deficiency. Different bionic solution found so far has not yet had the option to help blind people for a bigger scope.


But the team at Monash University has claimed that they have built a system through which people who suffer blindness in any form would be able to see again. According to them, this is the world's first bionic eye.

The user would have to wear a custom-designed headgear that has the camera and a wireless transmitter installed. A set of 9 mm tiles are implanted in the brain that receives the signals from the aforementioned receiver.

It is claimed to work by bypassing damaged optic nerves to allow signals to be transmitted from the retina to the vision centre of the brain.

A professor at Monash University's Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, said in a statement that their design creates a visual pattern from combinations of up to 172 spots of light (phosphines) which provides information for the individual to navigate indoor and outdoor environments, and recognize the presence of people and objects around them.
