Part of the team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), working for the project for 20 years, made the first prototype for implanting an eye retina. The device has a size as well as the true eye of the person and will offer a return to the eyesight of the blind and, of course, improving the sight of people with visual impairment. This device is practically a bio-electronic supplement that implements or sends images to the brain through a connector that is thin as one human hair.
The founder of the project, Joseph Rizzo, who began working on this topic in 1980, along with a group of 36 members in the team, said:
"The point is important to improve the quality of life for blind patients, and one of the good things about the bionic eye is that the whole device is located outside of the eye, except for a small piece of plastic, so it does not get into the eyeballs."
