Description

Bionic Vision Australia brings together Australia’s leading experts in medical bionics to develop a bionic eye to restore vision to people with retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. A prototype device has been successfully implanted into three patients for two years demonstrating outstanding safety and efficacy. Our development portfolio consists of wide view devices which aim to increase mobility and independence of patients and a high acuity device which will allow patients the ability to read large letters and recognize faces. With a $30 – $40 million series A financing, we will establish a US entity that will bring the first product to market and develop a further two devices through to commencement of clinical trials.
