By Hossein Ameri, James D. Weiland, Mark S. Humayun (auth.), Mark S. Humayun, James D. Weiland, Gerald Chader, Elias Greenbaum (eds.)

Artificial sight is a frontier quarter of contemporary ophthalmology combining the multidisciplinary abilities of surgical ophthalmology, biomedical engineering, organic physics, and psychophysical checking out. Many clinical, engineering, and surgical demanding situations needs to be surmounted sooner than frequent sensible purposes should be discovered. The aim of Artificial Sight is to summarize the state of the art examine during this intriguing quarter, and to explain many of the present techniques and projects which can support sufferers in a medical environment.

The Editors are energetic researchers within the fields of synthetic sight, biomedical engineering and organic physics. they've got acquired various expert awards and popularity for his or her paintings. the synthetic sight group on the Doheny Eye Institute, led via Dr. Mark Humayun, is a global chief during this quarter of biomedical engineering and medical research.
