Title: RETINAL IMPLANT FIXATION
Abstract:
Apparatus (50) is provided including an implantable retinal stimulator (90), for implantation on a retina (106) of an eye, and including (i) an electrode array (22) including electrodes (23); (ii) a plurality of photosensors (96); and (iii) driving circuitry (98), configured to drive the electrodes to apply currents to the retina. An interface member (56) is disposed at an outer surface of the implantable retinal stimulator, e.g., a peripheral member (54) surrounding at least a portion of the implantable retinal stimulator. A frame (124) (i) couples to the peripheral member and surrounds the implantable retinal stimulator at least in part, and (ii) has at least a first anchoring element receiving portion (28). A n anchoring element (40) is shaped and sized to be positioned in the anchoring element receiving portion and to penetrate scleral tissue (108). Other applications are also described.
