Providing vision to the people with retinal damage.

My idea is to reverse EEG so that it will provide vision to the blind.Here I want to perceive the vision through the camera,process it according to the required frequency,amplitude and send these impulses to the occipital lobe present in the hind brain.i think this might help in visualising the vision.please post your responses and ideas.thank you.

    Oct 8 2012: Cochlear implants do not treat deafness through EEG. It directly stimulates the auditory nerve.

    Perhaps a better idea would be to stimulate the optic nerve in some type of camera process.
