    • New Technology Helps the Blind To See
      By Jennie Nadel, Sophie Biber, and Zoe Lee-Mcdermott
    • For people with limited or no eye site they are amazed that they can now see things they never thought they would.
    • The Artificial Retina
      The Artificial Retina looks like glasses.
      Electrodes are surgically implanted to the patients eye.
      Then a camera is installed on the bridge of their nose.
      Patients also wear a video processor on their waist.
    • THE ARTIFICAL RETINA
    • What the patient looks like wearing the Artificial Retina
    • There are also different possible solutions to eye restoration
      Stem cell research is considered.
      Capsules are implanted into people’s eyes. The capsules have proteins that delay the process of decaying light-responding cells that result in blindness.
    • Patients who use the artificial retina say they can tell…
      Plates from cups
      Grass on the sidewalk
      white socks from dark
      The difference between a door and a window
      Large letters in the alphabet
      Where people are
