Artificial Vision — The 2nd Bonn Dialogue. The International Symposium on Visual Prosthesis

Retina Implant Foundation

19.09.2009, Bonn


Dear Colleagues!

In the past years significant progress was made in the development and tests of implants for functional electric stimulation of the retina. These implants are made to restore visual function in blind subjects suffering from retinal degenerations. Experts from Germany, the USA, Japan, China, Korea and Australia are coming together to present their latest results at the 2nd International Symposium on Artificial Vision – the Bonn Dialogue. Basic research aspects are discussed as well as data from clinical trials. The Symposium is organized by the Retina Implant Foundation.
