Implantable Eye Telescope That Treats AMD Now FDA Approved
A telescopic implant that fits directly into the eye to treat certain kinds of blindness has finally received FDA approval for use in the US after more than five years of waiting. The Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT) is used to treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a condition that affects millions around the world. For many, the center part of their vision becomes blurred or completely dark.
What is Glenn Beck's eye disorder?
Macular dystrophy can be a confusing term, because it’s used broadly and interchangeably with several diseases including macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness for Americans over the age of 60.
For someone at the age of 46, the macular dystrophy Beck referred to could be hereditary forms of retina damage, said Dr. David DiLoreto, assistant professor of ophthalmology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, who is not involved in Beck’s care.

I love how people will stop at nothing to dehumanize, defame, and discredit people who are becoming a voice against the current administration......

I stood too close to an exploding LAV-25 9 years ago as it took on a RPG, as a by product of this encounter my right leg is 85% synthetic: all synthetic muscle, bones are coated in titanium, knee joint is plastic, and the muscle extends due to the electric static that the mitocondria make along the real existing muscle.
