We use rabbits as experiment model to investigate the feasibility of visual prosthesis based on penetrating optic nerve electrical stimulation. A tungsten electrode was inserted into the exposed intraorbital optic nerve as stimulating electrode. The electrical evoked potentials (EEPs) and optic nerve responses (EEONRs) were recorded after direct electrical stimulation of the optic nerve to compare with the visual evoked potentials (VEPs) and visual evoked optic nerve responses (VEONRs).
