Personally, I don’t know how anyone can tolerate an object inserted into their eye, but you have to admit that this “eye “telescope” is simply amazing. While the implant is specifically designed for macular degeneration, it’s easy to imagine all the possibilities down the road.
This particular telescope magnifies images on the retina so they land on healthy tissue, reports The New York Times. The device was approved by a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel in March and already is in use in Europe.
Despite the recession, technology marches forward. How long before we see multiple cybernetic implants in humans?
