Moorfields Eye Hospital has done the UK’s first bionic eye transplant (

We thought you might be interested in the following article about “the UK’s first bionic eye transplant”, Prof Green from the executive team comments below:

Moorfields have implanted a number of different bionic eye devices over the years. They did the first UK trial of the US based Second Sight Argus in 2009.

This specific technology is a European based photovoltaic technology that offers greater resolution than the US Argus device. It will be interesting to see how the resolution of this device impacts on the patient experience and the reliability of the high resolution technology over chronic periods of implantation.
