Retinal implants enable blind individuals to restore vision through electrical stimulation of the retina. However, prosthetic vision differs from natural human vision in several ways. This report will introduce the fundamental principles of retinal implants and various research studies examining how device parameters (such as field of view or video input) impact user performance in visual tasks. Additionally, it will compare the brain activity evoked by artificial and natural vision.
