BIONIC VISION AUSTRALIA
Grant number: SR1000005 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
Bionic Vision Australia’s retinal implant will provide vision to blind patients suffering fromdegenerative retinal conditions, including age-related macular degeneration and retinitispigmentosa. The first advanced prototype to be clinically trialled will provide wide-viewambulatory vision for patients who have issues with light perception and mobility. A secondprototype device that delivers high-acuity functioning central vision, image perception andenables increased patient independence will be developed through pre-clinical trials to be readyfor implantation. The retinal implant and many other applications in medical bionics created bythis project will have immense commercial value.
