Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and implantable miniature telescope

July 7, 2017

 

 

Dr. Burton Worrell from Advance Vision Center of Optometry, along with other eye doctors, including the specialist surgeon, Dr. Randal Pham,  teamed to implant a very tiny telescope in the eye of a patient.  The first of its kind in the world!

 

The older gentleman was blind in one eye, and nearly blind in the eye where the implant was placed.  The surgery was successful and the patient was subsequently able to walk safely, and see to do normal daily activities that he could not previously perform. Such a happy result! 

 

The science paper was published and you can read the details in the link posted below.
