    Evaluation of patient suitability for a retinal prosthesis using structural and functional tests of inner retinal integrity
    Abstract. The purpose of this study was to assess inner retinal structure and function in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the retina, and electrical stimulation of the retina with a contact lens electrode. OCT images of 17 RP patients were acquired at the macula and at four quadrants of the peripheral retina in both eyes. Analysis was made of the residual inner retinal thickness and nerve fibre layer thickness in RP patients, and this was compared to normal controls. Eight of these patients further underwent contact lens electrical stimulation of one eye and ...
