First retinal implant study for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) restores some visual function - Fighting Blindness
We welcome the news that a retina implant has been tested in a patient with the most common form of sight loss in older individuals, age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This is a very promising development and could make a significant difference for patients who have progressed to late stage AMD and lost a considerable amount of vision. It is a clear example how research into rare diseases like RP can increase knowledge and translate into potential therapies for more common conditions such as AMD.
