Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in those over 60-years-old. The disease destroys central vision, which is needed for fine detail tasks such as face recognition, reading, watching television, driving, etc.. If detected early, traditional treatment can slow the vision loss, but nothing restores or stops the vision loss.
Great news for those suffering from age-related macular degeneration; the FDA has just approved a groundbreaking technology to counter age-related macular degeneration. At first, one might think the technology is straight out of a science fiction movie, but for those with macular degeneration, a tiny telescope implanted inside the eye is more like a love story.
