Abstract

The authors describe the implantation of the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System (Argus II) (Second Sight Medical Products, Sylmar, CA) into a short axial length (AL) eye. The authors' main modification is the use of endocyclophotocoagulation (endo-CPC) to the ciliary processes in the area that the cable enters through the sclerotomy. This case describes the surgical technique necessary for successful implantation of the Argus II into a short AL eye. The use of endo-PC prevents chaffing to the ciliary processes, does not affect postoperative intraocular pressure, and facilitates direct visualization of the structures during the surgery, preventing damage during implantation.
