Optobionics’ Artificial Silicon Retina™ microchip (ASR™) was designed to stimulate damaged retinal cells from within the retina to allow the cells to recreate visual signals that are processed and sent to the brain. The original Optobionics Corp. stopped operations, but Chow acquired the Optobionics name and a new company is being organized under the same name.
