Telescopic Eye

Miniature Telescope
Israeli company Vision Care Inc has developed an Implantable Miniature Telescope that could sound the death knell to all age-related macular degeneration that causes vision loss. Currently in phase II/III clinical trials, results have been nothing short of positive. The prosthetic telescope works with the cornea to enlarge images up to 3x the actual size, reducing blind spots in vision impaired patients. The device is situated in the eye itself after a minor operation.

So much for those good 'ol Mark 1 eyeballs. They are now soooo yesterday. I'm waiting for the infrared package then I am totally upgrading.
