What is a retinal prosthesis?
A retinal prosthesis is a non-living, electronic substitute for the retina. Popular and brand names for retinal prostheses are the Bionic Eye and the Argus II. The aim is to restore vision to someone blinded by retinal eye disease. A retinal prosthesis is different from an implanted lens or a low-vision device, which works to maximize a person’s existing vision.
