For the first time, a paradigm shift in the treatment of retinal ischemia is proposed: providing localized supplemental oxygen to the ischemic tissue via an implanted MEMS device. A passive MEMS oxygen transporter is designed, built and tested in both artificial eye models and porcine cadaver eyes to confirm various hypotheses. The finite element modeling results predict that the proposed approach can treat complete retinal ischemia.
