What is Late-Stage Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)?

Late-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an advanced form of AMD, where damage to the central vision area of the retina, the macula, occurs. Late-stage AMD is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss for people over 60 years old.


Signs & Symptoms

  • Vision distortions (straight lines may appear wavy or bent)
  • Decreased central vision (blurry or blind spot in vision)
  • Need for brighter lights when reading
  • Reduced brightness of colors

Late-Stage Age-Related Macular Degeneration Study Design

A clinical study to test the safety and effectiveness of an implantable miniature telescope (IMT) in patients with central vision impairment associated with late- stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Purpose & Importance

The purpose of this device is to magnify what a patient is seeing and project this image onto the retina, enabling the patient to recognize and identify objects that could not otherwise be seen.

Things to Consider

  • You will have access to clinical study experts, including ophthalmologists, that can answer any questions you have throughout the entire journey.
  • Your ocular and systemic health will be closely monitored over the course of the study.
  • There will be separately scheduled visits with a low vision occupational therapist who will help you learn about your “new vision.”
  • Our team has a strong background in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and medical device clinical trials.
