UWS in a bionic-eye project

The University of Western Sydney is involved in a bionic eye project which has been developed on the “smell of an oily rag”. Professor John Morley, professor of anatomy and cell biology, at the UWS school of medicine is part of a team led by Professor Minas Coroneo, an ophthalmologist and researcher, at the Prince of Wales and Sydney Eye Hospitals; it also includes Jim Patrick, chief scientist, of Cochlear, and then doctoral students Gregg Suaning and Vivek Chowdhury. Professor Coroneo, who claimed the team developed the implant for less than $100,000, predicts a bionic eye capable of allowing users to see large objects and navigate independently could be ready next year
