This futuristic bionic eye transplant will let blind people see in coming 10 years
2 What is Retinis Pigmentosa or RP?
Retinitis pigmentosa or RP are a group of genetic illnesses that damage the ability of retina to respond to the light. It is an inherited disease that leads to gradual decrease in our ability to see, loss of night vision and eventually blindness results. Also unfortunately Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) has no cure currently. The retina is a layer behind the eye that has light sensing cells, which convert light rays into nerve impulses. These impulses are then sent to the brain by the optic nerve, where they are recognized as images. Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) causes the cones and rods in the retina to die. These cones and rods are responsible for our night vision and peripheral vision. Read in the next slide, how the Argus II bionic eye will help people suffering from Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and those who have lost their eyes, to see again.
