The Eye Telescope

By David Ponce

So, it seems a company called Visioncare has come up with a tiny “telescope” that can be implanted in your eye. And no, no, it’s not for you to play bionic man with. Instead, it’s for people with age-related macular degeneration. That’s medspeak for when your retina starts going down the pooper. The implant gives you a 3X magnification, and focuses the light onto the parts of the retina that still work. It’s meant to be used on one eye, with central vision, while the other eye focuses on the periphery.
