An intra-ocular installation of an eye-camera.
An experiment in wearable technology, cybernetics, and perception.
I am attempting to recreate my eye with the help of a miniature camera implant in my prosthetic / artificial eye. The intraocular installation of an eye-cam will substitute for the field of vision of my left eye that I lost in 2005 from a car accident. While my prosthesis is an excellent aesthetic replacement, I am interested in capitalizing on the current advancement of technology to enhance the abilities of my prosthesis for an augmented reality.

Dimensions: Here are the measurements of the shell that I am currently wearing. It’s an oddly shaped shell and it’s hard to tell how much room there really is in there.
Thickness: 8 mm (Right below the iris – but it looks like there may be more thickness in other parts of the shell.)
Length of Shell: 21 – 23 mm
Iris: 12.25 mm Diameter
Pupil (Lens/aperture) : 4.5 mm Diameter
Here is an article about my Ocularist, William Danz who is on board with the project: http://articles.latimes.com/2005/apr/10/magazine/tm-eyeguy15
The scleral shell is made out of PMMA or poly(methyl methacrylate) Acrylic.
The installation would possibly entail putting the camera in the molding while it hardens or drilling after the fact. But I’m no engineer! Just sharing information that I’ve picked up.
