The world’s first bionic eyes have now been attached to the retinas of dozens of blind or nearly blind people, and we are just beginning to get a sense of what those patients see. People with these implants will have the ability to distinguish light from dark, and they can recognize the outlines of objects in their view. 

The simulations of what blind people see when their retinas are electrically stimulated reveal characteristics distortions.

These are simulations of what people with visual prostheses might perceive with a very high resolution implant

According to the Orcutt (2015) had stated “the artificially created vision is also distorted in certain characteristic ways, says Geourey Boynton, a professor of psychology at the University of Washington. New computersimulated images, based on reports from people with retinal implants as well as fairly well established knowledge of how cells in the retina respond to electrical signals, can help illustrate these distortions, says Bonyton, who conducted the research along with a fellow University of Washington psychology professor, Ione Fine”. A camera capture the image send by the stimulator and the device will converts them into electrical pulse patterns, which are then delivered to the retina via an implanted electrode array.
