Intraocular Vision Aid: Microoptic for Imaging of Micordisplays Inside the Eye onto the Retina
Eix I., Stork W.
Purpose: Often, the retinal function is still intact in a of blindness suffering person. This is given, when vision is only reduced due to a opaque cornea. In that case, a certain amount of vision can be given back by implanting a miniaturized vision aid into the eye. The vision aid consists out of a receiver module, a microdisplay, and an imaging optic. Restricted by the little dimensions between the display and the retina, as well as due to the reduced amount of pixel available on the display, it is not possible to implement the imaging optic as plain bulk optics.
