Join us for our third Assistive Technology Showcase and welcome Ana Leffel from Second Sight, developer of the Argus II! The Argus II is the only FDA-approved retinal prosthesis for adults with late-stage retinitis pigmentosa. Ana will also share an update on Second Sight’s Orion, a product currently in clinical trial with the FDA, designed to provide artificial vision to a broader population of adults without usable vision.

If you cannot make this presentation in person, you are welcome to call in on our conference line: 312-582-2994, conference bridge #301 and pin 1111#.

Ana will discuss:

  • how the Argus II works,
  • assessment of eligible candidates,
  • the rehabilitation process and
  • real-life examples of Argus users’ experiences with their new, artificial vision!
