There are about 285 million visually impaired people globally, out of which 39 million are blind. With the help of advanced technologies, scientists are designing a new approach to treat blindness. A team of researchers at Monash University has constructed a breakthrough product in the search for vision. Watch this video at Future Now to learn more about the world’s first bionic eye. The Gennaris bionic vision system helps in curing the optic nerve. It creates an alternative pathway for transmitting visual data from the retina to the brain’s visual cortex. In a couple of years, an upgraded version of the bionic eye will hit the market.
