|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Age-related Macular Degeneration||Device: Optimal Acuity Clear-K® Low Vision Aid System treatment||Not Applicable|
The Optimal Acuity Clear-K® Low Vision Aid System treats corneas with near infrared light in order to change the modulus of small volumes of anterior stromal corneal tissue. The change of modulus produces a change of corneal stiffness and shape that modifies the distribution of light onto the retina. Light rays are redirected from dysfunctional areas of the retina that have been damaged by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) to functional areas of the retina, thereby improving patient vision.
120 AMD patients meeting eligibility requirements will be treated. The study will record and analyze pre-treatment (Tx) and post-Tx examinations with follow-up extending to 24 months post-Tx. Analysis will include descriptive statistics and measures of correlation between outcomes and patient baseline characteristics.
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Clear-K® treatment in providing vision improvement to AMD patients.

Experimental: Treatment arm
Patients will be treated by the Optimal Acuity Clear-K Low Vision Aid System.
Device: Optimal Acuity Clear-K® Low Vision Aid System treatment
The treatment involves irradiation of the cornea with low energy light in a treatment pattern that produces corneal shape change.
- Best spectacle-corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) changes from baseline to 24 months post-Tx [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years ]CDVA will be measured using ETDRS letter scoring both pre-Tx and post-Tx with follow-up to 24 months post-Tx
- Visual Function Questionnaire (VFQ)-25 quality of life assessment [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years ]The VFQ-25 instrument will be used to assess patient quality of life measures.
