This chapter presents an overview of research on retinal prostheses and progress in this field, and provides a perspective on artificial vision and the role of modern technologies to support research in this sector. It also reviews studies on brain plasticity that provide essential information on changes in the brain as a consequence of (partial) blindness, the interaction of visual areas with other sensory modalities, and possible ways of influencing brain plasticity as a basis of visual rehabilitation.

Keywords: retinal prostheses; brain plasticity; blindness; visual rehabilitation
