Retinitis pigmentosa causes the gradual deterioration of retinal receptor cells eventually leading to loss of peripheral vision and color perception. Macular degeneration, meanwhile, causes damage to the retina’s center and leads to loss of central vision. This latest retinal device is expected to lead to faster implant and recovery as its size is only one-quarter of the original model. Members of the research team remain optimistic over this prosthesis although it does not fully guarantee the restoration of a patient’s original eyesight.
From the human eye, we now turn to the latest development on lens used in small mobile devices. And just to let you know, this lens is not the solid type but a liquid one.
