Recent clinical studies indicate that stimulation of the retina with tiny amounts of current can have a therapeutic effect on retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa. We have therefore developed a preventive treatment system which stimulates the eye with a thread electrode; among other objectives, the aim is that even blind patients can administer the therapy themselves under physician's supervision. © 2011 by Walter de Gruyter Berlin Boston.


A stimulation electrode arrangement for a device (10) for electrostimulation of the eye is described, the device (10) having a spectacles-like frame (11) with a nosepiece (12), an arrangement, connected to the nosepiece (12), for holding the frame (11) on the head of the patient, and at least one electrode holder (24, 25), arranged on the nosepiece (12) in adjustable fashion, for the wire-shaped stimulation electrode (26, 27). The stimulation electrode arrangement comprises an electrode carrier, which can be attached to the electrode holder (24, 25) in detachable fashion and on which the stimulation electrode (26, 27) is arranged

A device for electrostimulation of the eye is provided with a spectacles-like supporting frame (11) which has a nose part (12) and an arrangement (17, 18), connected to the nose part (12), for holding the supporting frame (11) on the head of the patient, wherein at least one stimulation electrode (26, 27) is arranged on the nose part (12). Furthermore, provision is made for at least two electrode holders (22, 23, 24, 25) on the nose part (12), between which electrode holders an interchangeable, wire-shaped stimulation electrode (26, 27) is clamped (FIG. 1).

In a method for treating at least one eye of a patient in need of such treatment with a pulsed electrical stimulation signal, first an individual parameter of the patient is determined, thereafter at least one stimulation parameter of the pulsed electrical stimulation signal is set depending on the at least one individual parameter, and then the pulsed electrical stimulation signal is applied to the at least one eye.
