PURPOSE To examine the safety and effectiveness of a retinal prosthesis that is implanted semichronically in two patients with advanced retinitis pigmentosa (RP). METHODS Two eyes of two patients with advanced RP had a retinal prosthesis implanted in a sclera pocket of one eye. The visual acuity of both eyes before the implantation was bare light perception. Phosphenes were elicited by suprachoroidal-transretinal stimulation (STS). The internal devices of the STS were implanted under the skin… CONTINUE READING
