About the Telescope Device

The investigational Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT(TM) by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz) is designed to be a solution for moderate to profound vision loss due to advanced, end-stage forms of AMD that have no current surgical or medical treatment options. Smaller than a pea, the telescope prosthetic device is implanted in one eye in an outpatient surgical procedure. In the implanted eye, the device renders enlarged central vision images over a wide area of the retina to improve central vision, while the non-operated eye provides peripheral vision for mobility and orientation.

The prospective, multicenter IMT002 Phase II/III trial was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of VisionCare's investigational medical device in individuals with moderate to profound bilateral central vision impairment associated with End-Stage AMD. A Premarket Approval (PMA) application and subsequent PMA amendments have been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug
