Sheila Nirenberg Reveals a New Device That Can Help with Vision Loss
Sheila Nirenberg reveals an innovative, new prosthetic eye device that she believes has the potential to offer patients with vision loss a more effective way of treating blindness in this enlightening technology-based keynote. She explains how the device works and how it offers those with retinal degenerative diseases a possible solution for their vision loss. The key part of this device is an encoder that can take visual information and relay it to the brain for interpretation, a feat that no other piece of technology has yet been able to accomplish. In this highly fascinating presentation, Sheila Nirenberg delves into the science and experiments behind creating this unique device, and shows how its technology not only has dramatic implications for those with vision loss, but also for those with hearing loss as well.
