What Would the World Look Like to Someone With a Bionic Eye?

(University of Washington) [R]esearchers used simulations to create short videos that mimic what vision would be like after two different types of sight recovery therapies. Lead author Ione Fine, a UW associate professor of psychology, said the simulations are unprecedented.
"This is the first visual simulation of restored sight in any realistic form," she said. "Now we can actually say, 'This is what the world might look like if you had a retinal implant.'"
Fine said the paper aims to provide information about the quality of vision people can expect if they undergo sight restoration surgery, an invasive and costly procedure.
