Bionic Vision Australia (BVA) is a national consortium of researchers working together to develop a bionic eye. The aim of this technology is to restore the sense of vision to people with vision impairment due toretinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.

The BVA bionic eye project brings together a cross-disciplinary group of world-leading experts in the fields of:

  • Ophthalmology
  • Biomedical engineering
  • Electrical engineering and materials science
  • Neuroscience
  • Vision science
  • Psychophysics,
  • Wireless integrated-circuit design
  • Surgical, preclinical and clinical practice

In December 2009, the Australian Federal Government awarded a $42 million ARC grant to Bionic Vision Australia to develop bionic vision technology.
