Artificial retina helps some blind people
For two decades, Eric Selby had been completely blind and dependent on a guide dog to get around. But after having an artificial retina put into his right eye, he can detect ordinary things like the curb and ...
Artificial retina more capable of restoring normal vision
Researchers have developed an artificial retina that has the capacity to reproduce normal vision in mice.
Popular Mechanics award given to artificial retina team
The team that helped to develop the Argus II retinal implant, including Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has been recognized with a Popular Mechanics 2010 Breakthrough Award.

(PhysOrg.com) -- The research, led by Wolfgang Fink, will aid both people with visual impairments and scientists involved in planetary exploration.
Caltech scientists create robot surrogate for blind persons in testing visual prostheses
Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have created a remote-controlled robot that is able to simulate the "visual" experience of a blind person who has been implanted with a visual ...
Technology to Treat Blindness Earns Award
Research performed at Caltech as part of a collaborative U.S. Department of Energy-funded artificial-retina project designed to restore sight to the blind has received one of R&D Magazine's 2009 R&D 100 Awards. ...
Visual system that detects movement, colours and textures created in Granada
Mimicking the way in which a retina works is a hard as it sounds. Scientists from Stanford University, in the United States, have spent the past two years working on imitating the way in which information is processed in ...
Researchers' vision: restoring sight through artificial retinas
Scientists are testing artificial retinas that they hope can restore partial sight to people who've lost their vision to the most common causes of blindness.
