Purpose: Incurable opacity as well as cicatrisation of the cornea, as for example after corrosion or chronic intraocular inflammations, frequently lead to blindness. The development of an intraocular visual aid (IOVA) can improve the life situation of blind patients with intact retinal function. In order to gain patients acceptance the system has to be miniaturized to a magnitude that external components can be integrated into a portable unit, and that the microsystem can be implanted into the eyeball.
