Argus II


Timely Tidbits, a collection of articles on a variety of subjects, will be coming your way again this week with part 2. You'll hear about an affordable tablet for the blind as well as the Argus II or "bionic eye" as it's called. You'll also journey back into history to find out about Laura Bridgeman.

In this second of two programs on vision restoration and rehabilitation, you'll hear from a woman who is actually living with the technology. You'll also learn about cutting edge research being done in Australia, restoring vision without using the actual eye itself.

It has been several years since the so called bionic eye was introduced, and now that people are using the Argus II, questions have come up about this type of vision restoration and the rehabilitation strategies that are needed. This program will explore those ideas.
