  Purpose

This is a 5-year study of patients implanted with the Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz) under Protocol IMT-002. All patients implanted with the telescope prosthesis who enrolled in the IMT-002 trial were asked to participate in this study to monitor long-term safety. Patients will undergo examinations at six-month intervals up to a total of 5 years following implantation.
