When someone becomes blind, a major part of the eye and also, in most cases, the nerves responsible for taking signals from the retina remain intact. Blindness, however, is a direct consequence of the degeneration of the retina in which the light-sensitive cells on the retina become disoriented or damaged.
Researchers from Italy have come up with a device that will help overcome the age-long obstacle of retinal degeneration. Unlike the existing solution to the problem, which involves using external devices to send signals to the retina via wires, the researchers have developed something lesser complicated.
In order to counter retinal degeneration, the researchers from [...]
