VisionCare receives CE mark for implantable telescope delivery system
A new delivery system for the CentraSight treatment program, which includes a telescope implant for treatment of age-related macular degeneration, has received CE mark, according to a press release from VisionCare.
The Tsert-Si includes a preloaded telescopic implant with foldable haptics that can be delivered through a 6.5-mm incision in patients with end-stage age-related macular degeneration.
In the United States, the CentraSight treatment program is indicated for patients with end-stage AMD “who meet specific eye health and vision requirements, and for whom common treatments such as glasses, vitamins, drugs or cataract surgery will not lead to vision improvement,” the release said.
Treatment is contraindicated in patients who have undergone any intraocular surgery in the affected eye, including cataract surgery, according to the release.
