2018 Clinical Ophthalmology  
Careful pre-operative screening, counseling, and management of patient expectations are critical for the successful implantation and visual rehabilitation of patients with the Argus II device.  ...  The Argus II retinal prosthesis system is one such artificial vision device approved for patients with RP. This review focuses on the factors important for patient selection.  ...  The manufacturer recommended axial length parameters are between 20.5 and 26 mm as the available cable lengths will not allow for optimal array placement in shorter or longer eyes.  ...
