We describe a pars plana approach for transplantation of autologous retinal pigment epithelial cells from a peripheral chorioretinal biopsy to prepared Bruch's membrane at the posterior pole of the same eye. The technique has potential application in research and could be clinically applicable in the treatment of senile macular degeneration.
