    Scientists have created an artificial retina

    Biotechnologists from Italy were able to create a polymer implant that can replace part of the inside of the eye-sensitive cells. Researchers conducted on rats have the first successful experiment: they put the implant directly to the nerve cells in the damaged rat retina.

    Now, scientists around the world are trying to create an equivalent of the retina. This experiment is unusual in that the implant is not made ​​of stem cells , and aromatic hydrocarbons and sulfur compounds. This material does a good talk, and is used widely in the production of OLED-displays and other electronics.

    Experiments with rats successfully completed - the nerve cells of the retina produces a pulse, and tried to pass them on to the moments when the light rays fall on the film. This means that the new technology in the near future it will be able to try, even in public.

    Yes The ASR is a silicon chip
    2 mm in diameter and 1/1000 inch in thickness.
    It contains approximately
    3,500 microscopic solar cells
    called "microphotodiodes,"each having its own stimulating electrode.
    These microphotodiodes are designed to convert the light energy from images into thousands of tiny electrical impulses to stimulate the remaining functional cells
    of the retina in patients with AMD and RP types of conditions.
