Subjects performed the following tasks:
A challenge for visually guided performance
FV= free viewing, FX= fixation controlled
Simulating prosthetic vision can help in:
Prosthetic vision is not just a technological challenge:
It promises to bring new areas of vision research and rehabilitation
Simulations supported by:
National Eye Institute and Foundation Fighting Blindness
