Retinal prosthesis technologies have been intensively studied over the past decades and some projects are in the clinical trial or conditional commercialization phase. Electronic components play essential roles in the retinal prosthesis technologies. In this article, we present basic aspects and the status of the retinal prosthesis field from an electronics‐oriented viewpoint. Important concepts, stimulation schemes, device designs, and other essential elements related to retinal prosthesis are discussed. Some leading projects in the field are also mentioned together with reference information.
