1 The Argus II Bionic eye
The futuristic technology that will enable blind to see is called the Argus II bionic eye or what is technically known as retinal prosthesis system. This technology uses computers and electric signals to fill the gap between retina and the optical nerve that is damaged and translates and communicates the signals of images to the brain. The company by the name of Second Sight has made a bionic eye that does this work and has named it Argus II and it was recently approved by the FDA. It corrects the damage done by Retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Read more about Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) in the next slide.
