Hybrid retinal implant is a visual prosthesis to reconstruct visual sensation in blind patients. It will consist of an outer apparatus and an implanted MEMS (micro-electro mechanical systems). Since the hybrid retinal implant requires neither the retinal ganglion cells nor the optic nerve, it will be more applicable to blind cause disease where the retinal ganglion cells and/or the optic nerve are NOT intact.
