Implantable Miniature Telescope

The Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT) lens, is a type of intraocular telescope designed to help patients with macular degeneration.

 

IMT is a more powerful lens than the earlier IOLVIP, making it particularly helpful to enhance your ability to read small print.

 

The IMT has recently passed the stringent assessment of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Mr Moriarty has been selected as the first ophthalmic surgeon to introduce this innovation to the UK and Europe.

How The IMT Procedure Works

The eye's natural lens is removed and replaced with the Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT) lens. The IMT magnifies central vision so it fills a larger part of the retina. This reduces the impact of scarring on the macula and restores central vision.
