Implanted Microchips Hold Promise for Retinal Disease

CHICAGO -- For the first time ever, scientists have successfully implanted microchips beneath human retinas.
The people who underwent the procedure are nearly blind from retinitis pigmentosa (RP); their eyes must heal before doctors will know how well they can see, Reuters writer Debra Sherman reported.
The chips replaced photoreceptors in the eye, so they could have future applications in retinal diseases such as RP and age-related macular degeneration.
