World’s first spherical artificial eye with 3D retina developed.

a study from researchers led by HKUST develops the world's first 3D artificial eye surpassing the capabilities of pre-existing bionic eyes and in some cases, exceeding those of the human eyes. The team states their electrochemical eye replicates the structure of its natural counterpart to proffer sharper visual acuity in the future, with extra functions such as the ability to detect infrared radiation in darkness.

The human eyes encompass incredible natural abilities, including an exceptionally wide field of view, and high resolution married with low distortion capabilities. Almost impossible to synthetically recreate in their entirety these factors taken together can make the loss of vision or the physical removal of an eye a highly distressing and adaptive life-event. In situations where the patient’s eyeball must
