DLC Lasik Austin News - Patient Receives Implantable Miniature Telescope

Monday, December 19th, 2011, 2:36 pm
The
Implantable Miniature Telescope is indicated for monocular implantation to
improve vision in patients aged 75 years and older who have stable severe to
profound visual impairment (BCVA 20/160-20/800) caused by bilateral central
scotomas (loss of vision) associated with end-stage AMD. In an outpatient
surgical procedure, the miniature telescope is implanted in one eye, in which
it magnifies central images over a wide area of the retina to improve central
vision. The unoperated eye provides peripheral vision.
