Summary More than 80 % of information we get from the outside world are provided through the eye. The eye has much contribution on our ordinary lives. Sixteen thousands of people lose their vision by various kinds of disease and injuries every year. However there is no treatment for restoring vision. We have been researching two methods, "Retinal Prothesis" and "Gene Therapy", to restore vision for the blind patients. We have been also trying to learn more visual system through the regenerative research of vision.
