The device, invented jointly by British and French engineers, consists of a chip and special glasses. Immediately below the patient’s retina, a two-millimeter implant is placed and glasses are placed on the head. The chip uses a camera to capture an image, transmits it to a computer, which returns the image through the retinal cells to the brain.
