USC Eye Institute patient Lisa Kulik began losing her sight to retinitis pigmentosa when she was in her early twenties. Today, with the implant, co-invented by USC Eye Institute co-director Mark Humayun, MD, PhD, Lisa wirelessly receives images from a camera mounted on a special pair of glasses.

The revolutionary invention, coupled with the expertise of the USC Eye Institute and Keck Medicine of USC surgeons and clinicians, has given Lisa the chance to see things she hasn’t seen in decades.
