How does the CentraSight treatment program help patients with End-Stage AMD?

The CentraSight treatment program uses a tiny telescope (Implantable Miniature Telescope by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz) that is implanted inside the eye. The telescope implant is an FDA-approved medical device that works like a telephoto lens of a camera. Once implanted inside the eye, it magnifies images onto the healthy areas of the light-sensing retina to help improve central (straight ahead) vision. The CentraSight treatment program has been developed to help patients follow the necessary steps for proper diagnosis, surgical evaluation, and postoperative care.

The telescope implant is not a cure for End-Stage AMD. At this most advanced stage of the disease, the macula itself is beyond repair. However, patients can regain central vision and vision-related quality of life by varying levels. Please visit for more details and important safety information.
