About the Argus® II Retinal Prosthesis System
Second Sight's Argus II System provides electrical stimulation that
bypasses the defunct retinal cells and stimulates remaining viable cells
inducing visual perception in individuals with severe to profound outer
retinal degeneration such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP). The Argus II
works by converting images captured by a miniature video camera mounted
on the patient's glasses into a series of small electrical pulses, which
are transmitted wirelessly to an array of electrodes implanted on the
surface of the retina. These pulses are intended to stimulate the
retina's remaining cells, resulting in the perception of patterns of
light in the brain. The patient then learns to interpret these visual
patterns, thereby regaining some useful vision. The system is controlled
by software and is upgradeable, which may provide improved performance
as new algorithms are developed and tested. Therefore current and future
Argus II users may benefit from the continuously improving technology.
The Argus II is the first artificial retina to receive widespread
approval, and is offered at approved centers in
