Company Summary

Nano Retina, a joint venture of Zyvex Labs and Rainbow Medical, is developing a bionic retina to restore sight to those suffering from retinal degenerative diseases. It incorporates nano-size components in a tiny implant, the size of a grain of rice. Its 30 minute implant procedure requires local anesthesia and attachment of the device to the retina. Return of sight is instantaneous: 600 pixels enabling persons to watch TV and identify faces.
