Dr. David Blair's curator insight, June 8, 2014 4:30 PM

This is very early technology but it is a very exciting advancement.  Scientists have invented an exciting technology that may be an option some day for the millions of patients suffering from blindness every year.  


The technology is pretty amazing.  The team developed goggles which create high res images which are then optimized by a computer the size of a smart phone.  Once the images are optimized, they are transferred to tiny cells under the retina via lasers from the googles.  From there, the body's normal biologic processes take over and convert the light into electric impulses sent to the brain.


This technology is currently only being tested in rats. 
However, Stanford along with several other institutions may eventually create the first "bionic" eye with this new technology
