Blindness may one day be a thing of the past thanks to the telescope implant from Visioncare. The telescope implant is literally a tiny telescope that is implanted onto a patient's eye to help them see better.

The telescope implant was designed to help people suffering from age-related macular degeneration or AMD. The telescope implant fixes the blind spots that sufferers of AMD have by projecting images on parts of the eye that aren't damaged. Hopefully thanks to inventions like this we can one day live in a world without blindness. Stats for Telescopic Eyeball Implants Trending: Older & Mild
