Artificial sight is a frontier sector of modern ophthalmology combining the multidisciplinary skills of surgical ophthalmology, biomedical engineering, organic physics, and psychophysical trying out. Many medical, engineering, and surgical demanding situations has to be surmounted ahead of common sensible purposes might be learned. The aim of Artificial Sight is to summarize the cutting-edge study during this fascinating sector, and to explain the various current approaches and tasks which can aid sufferers in a medical atmosphere.
The Editors are lively researchers within the fields of man-made sight, biomedical engineering and organic physics. they've got obtained quite a few specialist awards and popularity for his or her paintings. the synthetic sight workforce on the Doheny Eye Institute, led by way of Dr. Mark Humayun, is a global chief during this region of biomedical engineering and scientific research.
- Introduces and assesses the cutting-edge for a large viewers of biomedical engineers, biophysicists, and medical researchers
- Describes advances in microelectronics, microfabrication, surgical implantation, and psychophysical trying out of visible prostheses
- Outlines the promise of man-made sight and the demanding situations that has to be met
