Implantable Telescope for Macular Degeneration
Dr. YESnick and his wife Sandy were chosen to be part of the only team to provide the revolutionary implantable telescope for advanced macular degeneration. The telescope is implanted in one eye by replacing the natural lens which has been effected by AMD and replacing it with a tiny implant about the size of a pea.
This FDA approved surgery has been shown to increase sight by 3-4 lines and drastically improve quality of life.

Low Vision Aids
The massive improvements in technology have revolutionized the way people with low vision watch television, read a book or drive a car. Innovations in digital magnifiers created vast options for both handheld and stand options for magnification.
The innovations in the market are not limited to magnifiers, but great strides have been made in lenses, telescope glasses/bioptics, computer software, and prismatic readers.
Never before has the need been so great for guidance from a specialist optometrist to walk you through the options and help you understand what technology will provide you with the greatest impact.

WHAT IS YOUR LOW VISION EVALUATION?
The Low Vision evaluation consists of three steps:
- Find out the amount of vision the patient has.
- Find out the amount of vision needed to do the task desired.
- Figure out the best magnification device that allows the person to do the task.
We find out the amount of vision the patient has by performing a low vision evaluation. It is not anything like a regular eye exam:
- We use special charts and techniques to “draw out” any residual vision that may be “hiding” in the periphery.
- We recheck the regular eyeglass prescription to improve it if possible.
- We see how magnification affects the level of vision.
We find out the amount of vision needed to do the task desired with very specific questions and demonstrations.
- We ask the patient to bring samples of print they want to see (kindles, stock market pages, newspaper…).
- We ask the patient to bring samples of activities they do (needlework, playing cards…).
We figure out the best magnification device that allows the person to do the task by having many unique demonstrators in the office. We do not order any low vision device unless we prove that it works in the office first.
