Second Sight Medical Products, Inc. Key Developments

Second Sight Announces Exclusive Agreement with Tecnosalud S.A. to Bring the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis to Argentina

Second Sight Medical Products, Inc. announced plans to expand into South America by signing an exclusive agreement with Tecnosalud S.A. to distribute the Argus® II Retinal Prosthesis System (Argus II) in Argentina. Tecnosalud will be responsible for executing in-country management of all aspects of Second Sight's technology, including sales, marketing, national reimbursement, surgical and technical support. The Argus II is a device that induces visual perception in blind individuals with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) by providing electrical pulses to stimulate the retina's remaining cells, resulting in a perception of light patterns in the brain. Patients learn to interpret these light patterns to enhance their daily lives and visual function in a sighted world. There are an estimated 10,000 individuals in Argentina who are blind due to RP, with an additional 200 people newly diagnosed each year. Future enhancements to the Argus II will focus on external hardware improvements and software upgrades so that current Argus II users may benefit from the continually advancing technology.
