Argus III – The artificial retina is near!

from Singularity Hub:

Argus seeks to create an epiretinal prosthesis, a device that will take the image from a camera and send it to your brain via your optic nerve.

The first two phases of Argus (which we call Argus I and Argus II) have had extraordinary success with implants in more than 30 patients.

Now, LLNL is getting ready to launch Argus III – the third phase that will expand the number of patients, the quality of vision provided, and ease in which the device is implanted.
