Company developing wireless bionic vision solution for blind people.

iBIONICS enhances quality of life and improves health with wire-free neuro-modulation, sensory and nano-particle implanted solutions (electric medicine).

The award winning company has attracted the world's finest luminaries, operators and institutions. The flagship product, the Diamond EYE, is a bionic retina that drastically improves upon available products with a less invasive procedure and potential 10x increase in functional vision.

The Diamond Eye is designed for people with late stage Dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP).

iBIONICS is finalizing product development and actively financing the company via grants, private equity investment and philanthropy. Early collaboration and exploration are ongoing for hearing, brain and central nervous system condition solutions.
