@eunice12  - the typical word solar power means getting direct light from the sun to generate electricity. I think this needs to be light powered.

@Orin – I think this need to change from solar power to light power. I am sure the user will lose the other eye too if he stares at the sun for long.

@greenewr – We are talking about a very complex system, the human body itself is a miracle. Technology will defiantly take some time to replace each part of our body just perfectly.

@McDermott – I think it's all about planting the artificial retina on the actual one. I am sure we will have an electronic eye ball very soon.

Hello Elizabeth. When my wife had her surgery she was prescribed an anti-rejection drug sneak antibiotic. I wonder if the same medications would work and be effective for the lenses you describe. Many thanks. Bob

This is a good question, TJ, and I think another person asked it as well. I honestly don't know the answer so will have to ask the company about this. Stay tuned.

Even though I wrote the story and used the term, Orin, I do think you're right. I didn't feel quite right saysing "solar-powered." Although in a way, doesn't all the natural light on the earth come from the sun? Even on an overcast or rainy day, isn't the sun responsible for light? So while I completely see your point, I think an argument might be made for the other side as well.

Thank you, etmax. I did enjoy writing about this because of the possibility it has to really help people. Your question is an excellent one for the designers of this invention. I will pass it along and see what they say.

Thank you for your comment, briantutt. I really find it gratifying to write about technologies like this that can really help people, and the thought that this invention could help your wife regain her vision is a really positive one. Technology really is providing cures for things that would've never been possible in the past. I do hope sometime your wife gets the treatment she needs with the help of such inventions.
