Innovation Nation: Artificial Retina

After spending much of her life blind, Kathy Blake is seeing a glimmer of hope, thanks to an artificial retina developed by a company called Second Sight and the Doheny Eye Institute in Los Angeles. A camera is built into a pair of glasses, sending radio signals to a tiny chip surgically implanted in the back of the retina. See how it works in this episode of Innovation Nation with Miles O’Brien.
