Patients With Macular Degeneration Can Have Their Vision Restored With Telescopic Eye Implant at Ekol Hospitals
For selected people with advanced macular degeneration in both eyes, one option to improve vision may be surgery to implant a telescopic lens in one eye. Ekol Hospital in Izmir, Turkey, now offers this revolutionary procedure to patients with end-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most advanced form of the disease and a leading cause of blindness.
The Telescope Eye Implant is the only medical/surgical option available that restores a portion of vision lost to AMD.
The telescopic lens, which looks like a tiny plastic tube, is equipped with lenses that magnify your field of vision. The telescopic lens implant may improve both distance and close-up vision.
Dry macular degeneration is a chronic disease which affects the eyes, causing blindness in the center of the field of vision. The disease is age-related and is caused by the deteriorating of the tissue on the inside of the back wall of the eyeball. Another form of macular degeneration is wet macular degeneration. This is caused by the leaking of blood from blood cells grown under the retina in the back of the eye.
