Light instead of darkness: the Argus II implant

Dear Sir or Madam,

Night blindness, restriction of the peripheral visual field and ultimately blindness – this is the course of the hereditary eye disorder Retinitis Pigmentosa. Our current video deals with the Argus II implant, which makes it possible for people with Retinitis Pigmentosa to perceive light and therefore to get a better orientation and which occasionally gives a new lease of life.

Have fun watching,

Olga Wart
