Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the visual improvement after implanting an intra ocular mirror telescopic lens in pseudophakic age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) eyes.

Setting:

Tel Aviv University medical Center, Department of Ophthalmology, Ichilov Hospital and OptoLight Vision Technologies, Herzlia, Israel

Methods:

A specially designed mirror telescopic lens was implanted over an existing IOL in 8 pseudophakic ARMD patients. The visual acuity compared to the pre-op distance and near vision was evaluated.

Results:

All 8 eyes showed an improvement of visual functions for distance and for near. The range of distance improvement was between 2.0 and 3.5 ETDRS lines (average 2.7 lines) and for near between 3.0 and 4.0 lines (average 3.2 ETDRS lines).

Conclusions:

The implanted mirror telescope can be used to improve visual acuity for selected cases of pseudophakic ARMD eyes.
