Abstract

To aid the development of intraocular prostheses, properties of prosthesis vision through simulations in normally sighted observers were studied. Four young, normally-sighted subjects participated in preliminary testing. Text results confirm previous findings that reading is severely hampered if fewer than 2 cycles per character width are available, but is also limited by high dropout rates, low contrast and limited field of view.
