Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis occurs in the presence of foreign bodies in the eye, such as contact lenses or ocular prostheses. Papillae develop on the upper tarsal conjunctiva along the line of contact with the source of mechanical trauma, e.g., the lens edge. The upper eyelid may be traumatized with each blink of the eye, which occurs between 10,000 and 12,000 times daily, and the area of trauma may serve as an entrance for antigen possibly derived from altered proteins or chemicals in contact lens solutions, although no single causative allergen has been identified in this condition to date.

A subgroup analysis of the end-stage eye disease population failed to demonstrate any significant difference in the primary cause that led to the need of an ocular prosthesis application, classified as anterior- or posterior-segment related. Specifically, in our study population 52% of all patients received an ocular prosthesis following an anterior ocular disease or surgical complication from an anterior ocular disease, and 48% of all patients received an ocular prosthesis following a posterior ocular disease or surgical complication from a posterior ocular disease.

Ocular prosthesis replaces a missing right eye.

n 1755, French physician and scientist Charles Leroy discharged the static electricity from a Leyden jar—a precursor of modern-day capacitors—into a blind patient’s body using two wires, one tightened around the head just above the eyes and the other around the leg. The patient, who had been blind for three months as a result of a high fever, described the experience like a flame passing downwards in front of his eyes. This was the first time an electrical device—serving as a rudimentary prosthesis—successfully restored even a flicker of visual perception.

The analysis of the incidence revealed a gradual increase of prosthesis application for ocular tumors, which probably reflects the progress in early diagnosis and treatment, that reduced the mortality rates of these unfortunate events.,

Ocular tumors represented the third most frequent cause (14.58%) of ocular prosthesis application. Among them, retinoblastoma was the most frequent (51.6%), which may be explained by the higher number of patients in the 0–5 years age group, reflecting the need of a prompt application of an ocular prosthesis in children in order to develop a normal facial symmetry., Melanoma was the second most frequent tumor (44.5%), and was also observed in adult prosthesis wearers. The distribution according to gender did not show a statistically significant difference, as already reported in scientific literature.

To overcome these challenges, my colleagues and I have developed a wireless photovoltaic subretinal prosthesis, powered by pulsed light. Our system includes a pocket computer that processes the images captured by a miniature video camera mounted on video goggles, which project these images into the eye and onto a subretinally implanted photodiode array. Photodiodes in each pixel convert this light into pulsed current to stimulate the nearby inner retinal neurons. This method for delivering the visual information is completely wireless, and it preserves the natural link between ocular movement and image perception.
