Second Sight Medical Products, Inc. (http://www.2-sight.com), located in Los Angeles, California, was founded in 1998 to create a
retinal prosthesis to provide sight to patients blinded from outer retinal
degenerations, such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
Through dedication and innovation, Second Sight's mission is to develop,
manufacture and market implantable visual prosthetics to enable blind
individuals to achieve greater independence.
The FDA-approved Argus™ II Clinical Trial was initiated in Mexico in
2006 with a two-patient pilot study, followed by a 30-patient trial in Europe
and the United States. The results
that were recently presented from the trial showed that the Argus II System
provided significant improvements in vision for the blind subjects who are
suffering from profound retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
This is the most clinical experience of any retinal prosthesis ever
developed. In February 2011, Argus
II became the first such treatment for the blind to obtain the CE Mark and make
the leap from research to the marketplace in Europe. An application for FDA approval in the US
is being submitted in 2011. The European Headquarters are in Lausanne,
