UC Irvine ophthalmologists were the first in Orange County to implant tiny telescopes in two patients suffering from age-related, end-stage macular degeneration, the university announced Monday. Doctors from the university's Gavin Herbert Eye Institute in December inserted one of the 4-millimeter telescopes into an 85-year-old Irvine resident's eye and another in a 94-year-old Anaheim resident's eye, according to a UCI statement. The devices restore limited vision by projecting an image onto the undamaged section of the retina, enabling patients to recognize faces, read and perform daily activities.
