Wireless considerations in ocular implants based on microsystems
W. Li, Michigan State University, USA
Artificial ocular implants have provided effective diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to individuals suffering from neural diseases and injuries of optic nerve and peripheral retinal neurons. Advanced developments in radio-frequency (RF) microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology have been widely employed in ocular implants to enable wireless power and data transmission between implanted devices and external units for chronic implants. This chapter provides an insightful overview to state-of-the-art developments and applications of wireless microsystems in ocular implants, with emphasis on wireless microsensors ...
