Millions of people who have impaired vision can derive benefit from a break through advancement in Nanotechnology. Nano Retina is a company which aims to restore vision in people who have impaired vision due to retinal degeneration.

Nano Retina creates an artificial retina. This artificial retina bypasses the photoreceptors which get damaged due to various degenerative diseases (like Retinitis Pigmentosa, Age Related Macular Degeneration). The electric impulses are rather conveyed to the optic nerve via the functional retinal layer.

This artificial retina consists of two units a miniature implanted chip and eyeglasses for the patient.
