The iBIONICS Diamond Eye: A Visionary Solution
Developed at the University of Melbourne under Bionic Vision Australia, the iBIONICS Diamond Eye restores vision enabling the blind to regain autonomy, recognize faces and read large print. The iBIONICS Diamond Eye uses diamond electrodes to stimulate the retina, sending messages to the brain perceived as light. This leading technology designed to return autonomy and partial vision to the blind is supported by a state-of-the-art wireless solution for implantable bionic devices developed in Canada.
