The research paper on Seminar Topics for CSE Artificial Vision – A Bionic Eye Sheds New Light speaks about prosthetics that help to overcome handicaps. It posits that Bio medical engineers play a vital role in shaping the course of these prosthetics. Now it is the turn of artificial vision through bionic eyes. Chips designed specially to imitate the characteristics of the damaged retina and the cones and rods of the organ of sight are implanted with a microsurgery. Linking electronics and biotechnology, the scientists has made the commitment to the development of technology that will provide or restore vision for the visually impaired around the world.
Bionic eye,’ also called a Bio Electronic eye, is the electronic device that replaces functionality of a part or whole of the eye. It is still at a very early stage in its development, but if successful, it could restore vision to people who have lost sight during their lifetime. A bionic eye work by stimulating nerves, which are activated by electrical impulses. In this case the patient has a small device implanted into the body that can receive radio signals and transmit those signals to nerves. The research paper talks about the causes of blindness as follows:
CAUSES OF BLINDNESS
There are a number of retinal diseases that attack these cells, which can lead to blindness. The most notable of these diseases are
- Retinitis pigmentosa
- Age-related macular degeneration.
The research paper talks about how a “bionic eye” allows blind people to see.
Scope of Bionic eye: Researchers are already planning a third version that has 1,000 electrodes on the retinal implant, which they believe could allow for facial-recognition capabilities and hope to allow the user to see images.
The research paper concludes by saying that the bionic eye has changed the world of the visually challenged people .We are sure that higher quality, better resolution, and even color are possible in the future.
