Bionic Eye with LASERS n Gold Nanoparticles

A novel approach to restoring sight using a ‘bionic eye‘ is being investigated at Swinburne University of Technology.

The laser stimulation of optic nerves is the focus of this research to develop a vision prosthesis – perhaps a tiny laser device fitted in a pair of spectacles – much like the cochlear implant for restoring hearing.

Bionic eye hope blends lasers and gold



Swinburne’s Applied Optics and Biomedical Engineering Groups are seeking government and philanthropic funding to progress this research using gold nanoparticles to amplify laser light.
