Scientists Have Created an Artificial Retina Implant That Could Restore Vision to Millions

credits:factidiot instagram Scientists have developed a retinal implant that can restore lost vision in rats, and are planning to trial the procedure in humans later this year. The implant, which converts light into an electrical signal that stimulates retinal neurons, could give hope to millions who experience retinal degeneration – including retinitis pigmentosa – in which photoreceptor […]
