Oxford University researchers have transplanted developing cells into the eyes of completely blind mice to re-form the entire light-sensitive layer of the retina.
For the first time ever, real-life trials have shown that sight can be restored to the totally blind, thanks to an electronic retina.
Oxford University scientists are protptyping glasses that could help people with severely limited vision see again.
New research has disclosed a completely new mechanism for vision, showing it's still possible to see even when the retina has been completely destroyed.
German scientists have developed a chip which can be implanted behind the retina to restore sight to blind people.
