Published: Nov 10, 2016
Pixium Vision, a company based in Paris, France, has announced that its Iris II bionic vision system has been implanted into the first patient. The Iris II was cleared in Europe back in July of this year and the UK regulatory authority, Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), gave a green light for a clinical trial a month before that. The first implantation was performed at the Moorfields Eye Hospital in London in September and the system activated shortly thereafter.
