Retinal safety of near infrared radiation in photovoltaic restoration of sight


Photovoltaic restoration of sight requires intense near-infrared light to effectively stimulate retinal neurons. We assess the retinal safety of such radiation with and without the retinal implant.

PRIMA – Interactions of Prosthetic and Natural Vision in Animals With Local Retinal Degeneration


Prosthetic restoration of partial sensory loss leads to interactions between artificial and natural inputs. Ideally, the rehabilitation should allow perceptual fusion of the two modalities. Here we studied the interactions between normal and prosthetic vision in a rodent model of local retinal degeneration.
