Caption

Argus II artificial retina controls. Glasses and control box (blue) for the Argus II retinal implant. The Argus II was developed by US company Second Sight. It consists of a 60-electrode array implanted in the retina, plus external equipment. The images are captured by the camera integrated in the glasses, and then sent to the control box that processes the image and sends impulses to the microchip implanted in the retina. Users of this implant are able to perceive contrasts between light and dark areas, but not yet full vision. Argus II was approved for sale in Europe in 2011. Photographed in 2010.
