This new retinal implant does not require batteries.

The new bionic eye technology requires a special pair of glasses that beams near infrared light into the eye according to BBC.

This is creating an electrical signal that is transmitted to the visual nerves. Sounds all pretty complicated and has only been tested on rats so far.
