First Bionic Eye For US Market Awaits Approval From FDA

“The retina is the back part of your eye¬†with the cells that respond to light. The cells are known as photo receptors and come in two varieties: rods and cones. Rods are very sensitive to light, shapes and movements and cones are not as sensitive, but they control the perception of color.
Like a digital camera, the retina does basic optical processing like edge detection and enhancement and color separation. It¬†transmits images through the optical nerve and then your brain returns the inverted image to its correct right side up.”
