Bio-Retina Implant to Give Sight to the Blind

The Bio-Retina implant from Nano Retina is an attempt to assist patients with age-related macular degeneration.  The small implant does not include an antenna and can be inserted via a tiny incision within minutes.  The device can capture images directly in the eye and is remotely powered by a laser.  The Bio-Retina can provide users with 576-pixel grayscale images.
