Title
(EN) METHOD FOR STIMULATING RETINAL RESPONSE USING PHOTOACTIVE DEVICES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE STIMULATION DE LA RÉPONSE RÉTINIENNE À L'AIDE DE DISPOSITIFS PHOTOACTIFS
Abstract
(EN)
An improved method for stimulating electrical activity in an eye is provided. The invention provides a technique for implanting small, nanometer-sized photoactive devices into an eye to improve electrical activity within an eye or mitigate degradation of electrical response in damaged eyes.
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un procédé amélioré permettant de stimuler l'activité électrique dans l'œil d'un patient. L'invention concerne également une technique permettant d'implanter, dans l'œil, de petits dispositifs photoactifs de la taille du nanomètre afin d'améliorer l'activité électrique à l'intérieur de l'œil ou d'atténuer la dégradation de la réponse électrique dans un œil atteint.
