Assess the principle possibilities and the present applicable systems to gain artificial vision in blind patients by electrical stimulation of the optical pathway by 5 international research groups.
1. To understand the different approaches, their ways to produce minimal sight and their present possible application in patients with different causes of blindness.
2. One can see that despite some running experimental studies only two systems have reached so far some kind of clinical applicability: retinal stimulation by Argus II from Second Sight and Implant AMS from Retina Implant.
