Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. We are not associated with that TV show, but I can help you with information on this topic.
What they were talking about was the retinal implant. This technology is in the early stages of trials to see if it works and is only available to a select few patients through these studies.
Are you available to chat?
I saw a show with a young girl was legaly blind and an operation was preformed on tv that gave her sight back what was the neme of the operation
It was a retinal implant.
It's a computer chip that is implanted in the eyeball......it is only available right now in experimental trails. Here is information on this technology in the USA, along with contact information....
thak you my wife is in the wame condition at 72 do you think it would help her ?
That is hard to tell without knowing more about her. But it sure wouldn't hurt to give the folks at Wills Eye Hospital a call and see if she would be a good candidate for the study.
Does this make sense to you?
