Telescopic Contact Lens That Can Help Adults With Age-Related Macular Degeneration

| No Comments


Telescopic Contact lens.pngMy colleague WG found this very informative article by Gizmag's Brian Dodson about a group of researchers that have devised a telescopic conract lens that can help adults with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).  Professor Jack Ford led a group of researchers in developing a prototype lens that can "offer AND patients a relatively unobtrusive way to enhance their vision" by magnifying their vision to see objects and people more clearly. 

The illustration above gives an idea of how the lens works.  Professor Ford and his team are working on an improved version of the lens.  For more info about this remarkable breakthrough, click here.
