This artist's rendering of the IMT at work shows how the device redirects light entering the eye away from the macula -- the spot on the back of the eye that is damaged in patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration. By aiming this light at healthy cells within the eye, the patient is able to better view objects in the middle of their field of vision. (Visioncare Ophthalmic Technologies Inc.)
