As technology improves across the medical spectrum new devices, including implants, are providing help for patients who just a few years ago may not have had any treatment options available.

Aleksandra Rachitskaya, MD, from the Cole Eye Institute at the Cleveland Clinic discussed the potentials for the future of this field during the annual meeting of the American Society of Retina Specialists in San Francisco. As the name suggests the ARGUS II system is the second edition of one example of this new technology but the doctor said the future is wide open to potentially helping other patients with other conditions down the road.
