Status unknown

This technology is an improved version of what the National Chiao Tung University’s Biomedical Electronics Translational Research Center (BETRC) has been developing. The BETRC created an artificial retina that uses two threads to transmit power from the eyewear worn by the user to a chip implanted in the eyeball. Amazing Vision has added a tiny solar panel to the chip that generates power by absorbing infrared light. This improvement reduces inflammation to the eye, reduces infection risk, and gives clearer and wider vision to the patient it was implanted in. Animal tests have already been conducted and have proven useful. Human testing was delayed due to the pandemic, but is soon to be conducted.
