VisionCare's Macular Degeneration Telescope Implant Named 'Best of What's New' 2010 by Popular Science
Date:11/17/2010

SARATOGA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies, Inc., a developer of advanced visual prosthetic devices, today announced the Implantable Miniature Telescope (by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz), designed to improve vision in patients with end-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is named "Best of What's New" 2010 by Popular Science magazine. VisionCare's first-of-kind telescope implant is integral to a new patient care program, CentraSight™, for treating patients with end-stage macular degeneration - the most advanced form of AMD and the leading cause of blindness in older Americans in the U.S. The telescope implant is the first and only treatment for AMD patients who progress to end-stage disease.

Through a rigorous screening process, Popular Science magazine evaluated companies and products in eleven different categories to identify innovations with potential to positively impact the future and push the envelope of what was not thought to be possible in the previous twelve months. Annually, Best of What's New honors the top 100 innovations.  VisionCare's telescope implant is a Best of What's New winner in the health category in the December issue of the magazine that appears on stands today. Smaller than a pea, the telescope implant earned U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval on July 1, 2010.

"We are very pleased our telescope implant is being recognized by Popular Science magazine as Best of What's New 2010. After years of scientific and clinical development, we are excited to provide this new technology and related CentraSight treatment program to patients and the ophthalmic community," said Allen W. Hill, President and CEO of VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies, Inc.  "Our implantable telescope has the potential to provide highly significant improvements in both vision and quality of life in patients living with end-stage AMD."
