Blindness, Retinal Implant

The company is a medical devices company that is developing a fully functioning electronic retinal implant to restore partial vision in blind patients. The company’s technology consists of a microchip that is implanted into the patient’s retina and serves to absorb light falling into the eye and transmits it into electric energy that simulates sight in the brain. The company’s product provides patients with enough vision to at least count fingers and at best to recognize faces, a significant advance in the treatment of blindness as there are currently no products that can restore sight in patients with degenerative retinal disease.
