The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free technique used to perform the critical first step in the LASIK procedure: creating the corneal flap. The creation of the corneal flap prepares the eye for the second step of the LASIK procedure where an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision.

Implantable Microscope Technology (IMT)
Treatment for Macular Degeneration in Long Beach
This technology is the first-of-kind telescope implant is part of the CentraSight™ treatment program, a new option for treating patients with end-stage macular degeneration - the leading cause of blindness. This disease effects over 1.6 million aging Americans by creating a permanent central vision blid spot, making it difficult or impossible to recognize familiar items as well as fiends and family.
The symptoms of macular degeneration are a loss of central vision. Some people may find that they are having trouble recognizing people, reading the newspaper, and may feel disoriented at times.
Until the availability of the CentraSight™ telescope implant late last year, patients with the most advanced form of AMD had no other options. End-stage AMD is a devastating disease that cannot be treated by any available drugs or surgical procedures.
The first implantable microscope was developed by CentraSight™ to help improve this problem. The 45 milligram
telescope, is smaller than a pea and replaces the eye’s lens, magnifying the central region of vision. The blind spot may decrease due to this treatment and vision may improve.
How the CentraSight™ Implantable Microscope Technology Works:
The tiny telescope is implanted in the pace of the eyes natural lens to help improve vision in patients with End-Stage Macular Degeneration. The IMT reduced the impact of the central vision blind spot by projecting the objects the patient is looking at onto the healthy area if the retina,not the area degenerated by the disease.
