Telescope Eye Implant for Macular Degeneration

In an incredible advance in the field of high tech medicine, an eye implant is now being used to fight macular degeneration, a significant eye disease that affects millions of people - mostly seniors.

Although the implants do not reproduce normal vision, they have been improving vision by about two eye chart lines for about 90% of the test cases.

The FDA continues to review the technology but it is now available to many.
