Abstract

This paper addresses the latest advancements in the application of computational electromagnetics and smart telemetry systems to the development of a retinal prosthesis to restore the sight in the blind. Numerical methods and models have been developed to a) accurately characterize the thermal increase in the human head and eye associated with the operation of the retinal prosthesis, b) determine the current spread in the retinal tissue associated with the implanted microstimulator array, and c) design a high data rate smart telemetry system with extended capabilities with respect to traditional telemetry systems.
