The Phoenix99 Bionic Eye is an implantable system designed to restore a form of vision in persons who are blind. The device’s two main components which need to be implanted consist of a stimulator attached to the eye and a communication module positioned under the skin behind the ear. Sheep trials showed that the body accepted both these elements and furthermore healed around them. The team is now applying for ethics approval to perform clinical trials in human patients.
