Researchers at Bionic Vision Australia have developed a prototype of a bionic eye, designed to restore sight to those with failing vision. The device consists of the implant, a pair of glasses with a mounted camera and a small processor that can be kept in the pocket. The camera captures the images and sends them to the processor which transmits a signal wirelessly to the eye implant. This directly stimulates the (surviving) neurons in the retina, signaling an image to the brain.
