The first ever implanted artificial retina to win U.S. regulatory approval will is hoped to bring back the vision of adults going due to a rare eye disease and let them do daily tasks, and a Glen Burnie senior has put his name forward as a volunteer to receive the treatment.
Elian Konstantopoulos, 74, volunteered to have Argus II implanted as a part of clinical trial. He said:
“I became completely blind and didn’t have nothing to lose. [Now] there’s a lot of hope.”
Inventor Alfred E. Mann, chairman of the Second Sight Medical Products Inc. received the Food and Drug Administration clearance for the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System, if agency statements are to be believed. The system helps adults suffering from advanced retinitis pigmentosa, which causes gradual loss of vision by damaging the light-sensitive cells lining the retina.
The device, costing in excess of $100K, consists of a video camera, eyeglasses mounted transmitter, and a processing unit. The system does not restore sight, but it gives patients the ability to make out the difference between dark and light.
Robert Greenberg, president and chief executive officer of Sylmar, said:
“This is a game changer. The product represents a huge step for the field and for patients who were without any available treatment options till now.”
According to a clinical study conducted on 30 people, the device helped patients detect street curbs, recognize large letters, and even match black, white, and gray colored socks. Printing services can play a large role in this procedure my providing material that can help test the patient’s new eye and vision, after the procedure has been completed successfully.

Among the highlights of the Martin Luther King weekend in the area was the award of the ‘Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major Award’ to a naval officer at a Glen Burnie awards dinner.
Captain Stanley Keeve won the award, which is given to individuals who epitomize the spirit encapsulated by King, as well as the ideals laid out in his famous ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, through their actions and behavior today.
Vice Admiral Michael H. Miller summed up why Captain Keeve merited the award, saying:
“[He] plays a key role in admitting the most talented young men and women in America and is directly responsible for preparing them as midshipmen to excel as professional officers in the Navy and Marine Corps through classroom instruction, local navigation and seamanship training on Naval Academy craft, and at sea experiences with operational fleets.”
Of course, this year’s MLK Day fell on the same day as the inauguration of President Obama – marking only the second occurrence of such a coincidence. The first was in 1997 at Bill Clinton’s second swearing-in.
Some locals, like Glen Burnie resident Taylor Barfield – a junior at Bowie State University – spoke of their amazement at the coincidental date that the inauguration fell on. The student believes that King would enjoy President Obama’s presence if he were alive today.
With MLK Day being a memorable one in the area, printing services will no doubt have come in handy for those who were there to capture the special day with their electronic devices.
