Background. A visual prosthesis is a conceptual device designed to harnesses the function of residual afferent neurons in the visual pathway to produce artificial vision. Such implant, when applied to stimulate the vitreous surface of the retina, has proven feasible in producing the perception of light in both animals and humans. However the practicality of such device has been challenged by the difficulty of surgical access and the risks of damaging the neuroretina. Positioning a visual… CONTINUE READING
