Electronic Eye Implant
Promising results have shown that blind patients have regained their sight with a sub-retinal microchip, according to the first part of the second clinical trial for the device taking place in Germany. The patients involved in the study, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society, were blinded by retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and used the implant in and outside of their homes. Retinitis pigmentosa is one of the most common types of inherited retinal degenerations and affects nearly 1.5 million people around the world. It is a progressive condition, becoming worse over time and causes severe vision problems as age progresses. Retinal implants provide hope for RP patients to regain their sight.
