The most recent addition to the market of small aperture optics is the XtraFocus pinhole intraocular implant
. This device is a supplementary implant for pseudophakic patients with irregular corneal astigmatism and is implanted in a piggyback style in the ciliary sulcus to compliment a pre-existing IOL in the capsular bag.
A classic illustration is recounted in this unusual Illinois case in which the patient's intraocular implant
ultimately resulted in a fungus in the eye causing a total lack of sight in the eye.
The ECT intraocular implant
is a small device--the size of a grain of rice--containing cells that provide sustained delivery of a vision-preserving protein known as ciliary neurotrophic factor, which is delivered directly to the back of the eye in a controlled, continuous basis, thus bypassing the blood-retinal barrier and overcoming a major obstacle in the treatment of retinal disease.
It is comprised of an intraocular implant
and an extraocular part (in a pair of glasses), which consists of a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor image sensor that records visual images.
