Optic nerve stimulation to aid the blind

Scientists from EPFL in Switzerland and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Italy are developing technology for the blind that bypasses the eyeball entirely and sends messages to the brain. They do this by stimulating the optic nerve with a new type

Researchers develop ‘autofocal’ spectacles

Researchers at Stanford University have developed ‘autofocal’ spectacles which adjust power using eye tracking technology. The prototype spectacles use fluid-filled lenses that bulge and thin according to data from eye tracking and depth sensors triangulate where a person is looking
