Replace Damaged Optic Nerves

  Many persons have had their optic nerves severly damaged from Glaucoma so that eyesight has been lost. My idea is to insert photo electric cells in front of the damaged nerves to collect the light coming through the front of the eye. A chip inserted in maybe the neck would take these light beams and convert them to a signal format compatible with the output of the optic nerve to the brain. Hence, the damaged nerve is bypassed but its function is performed by the photo electric cells and the chip.
