The retinal prosthesis, Argus II. 

 

 

The system includes glasses, VPU, and a cable. The individual wears glasses equipped with a camera that captures images and converts them into a series of small electrical pulses. 

 

 

 

 The pulses are transmitted wirelessly to the prosthesis and its array of electrodes on the surface of the retina.
