Wireless retinal implant could restore functional sight

from The Jerusalem Post

An innovative retinal implant that could restore vision in a resolution five times better than existing devices has been produced by an international team that included researchers from Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan. The development was described in a recent issue of Nature Medicine. The retinal implant — a 30-micrometer-thin, photovoltaic pixel array implanted beneath the retina — converts incoming infrared light into electric current — which stimulates the retinal neurons that remain functional, allowing them to send messages to the visual center of the brain more
