New approach for better vision with a retina implant

"In the case of retenitis pigmentosa and also in the case of macular degeneration, the retina chip can help because the remaining nerve tissue is largely intact in the eye, and can be artificially stimulated on the basis of electrostimulation“, explained Frank Rattay of the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing at the Vienna University of Technology. In the case of such implants, microchips are implanted in the retina. They convert light signals into electrical pulses which then stimulate the cells of the retina.

The results of the computer simulation of the Viennese researchers published in the scientific journal "Vision Research" were supported by experimental findings by colleagues from Harvard Medical School (USA) and the University Hospital Tübingen in Germany.
