Telescope Exchange Study


Brief description of study

VisionCare's Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT, intraocular telescope or telescope) is indicated for monocular implantation to improve vision in eyes of patients at least 65 years of age with severe to profound vision impairment caused by bilateral central scotomas associated with end-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Patients with end-stage AMD who have undergone bilateral cataract removal and intraocular lens placement are currently contraindicated for telescope surgery.

These patients have no viable therapy available to improve their vision.

The objective of the TES pilot study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of implanting the intraocular telescope for improving vision in patients with bilateral end-stage age- related macular degeneration who are pseudophakic.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03011554
