(FR) DISPOSITIFS, SYSTÈMES ET MÉTHODES DE RESTAURATION DE LA VISION
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed are devices, systems, and methods for restoring vision to a subject. In one embodiment, the vision restoration device comprises a projector configured to project one or more digital images onto a central retina of the subject and one or more lenses coupled to the projector and configured to focus the one or more digital images. The vision restoration device can also comprise an extraocular component configured to be implanted within the subject and comprising one or more processors programmed to execute instructions stored in a memory to wirelessly receive the one or more digital images from an extracorporeal device. The intraocular projection component can be connected or coupled to the extraocular component by a trans-scleral communication wire configured to cross the sclera of the eye. The trans-scleral communication wire is configured to transmit digital data between the extraocular component and the intraocular projection component.

La présente invention concerne des dispositifs, des systèmes, et des méthodes de restauration de la vision chez un sujet. Dans un mode de réalisation, le dispositif de restauration de la vision comprend un projecteur conçu pour projeter une ou plusieurs images numériques sur une rétine centrale du sujet et une ou plusieurs lentilles accouplées au projecteur et conçues pour focaliser la ou les images numériques. Le dispositif de restauration de la vision peut également comprendre un composant extra-oculaire conçu pour être implanté dans le sujet et comprenant un ou plusieurs processeurs programmés pour exécuter des instructions stockées dans une mémoire pour recevoir sans fil la ou les images numériques en provenance d'un dispositif extracorporel. Le composant de projection intraoculaire peut être connecté ou couplé au composant extra-oculaire par un fil de communication trans-scléral conçu pour traverser la sclère de l'œil. Le fil de communication trans-scléral est conçu pour transmettre des données numériques entre le composant extra-oculaire et le composant de projection intraoculaire.
