· Background: The success of a retinal prosthesis for patients with outer retinal degeneration (ORD) depends on the ability to electrically stimulate retinal cells other than photoreceptors. Experiments were undertaken in human volunteers to ascertain whether electrical stimulation of cells other than photoreceptors will result in the perception of light. · Methods: In two subjects, two areas of laser damage (argon green and krypton red) were created in an eye scheduled for exenteration due to… CONTINUE READING
