Executive Summary

It's not known how age-related macular degeneration (AMD) converts from the dry, relatively benign form to the wet, sight-threatening form, or in which patients that progression is inevitable. It is known, however, that patients in the early stages face a 1.3 percent risk of developing wet AMD within five years, while people who have advanced to the intermediate stages of dry AMD face an 18% chance of progressing to the sight-threatening advanced dry or wet stages. For this latter group, Acuity Medical hopes to offer a safe, painless, non-invasive vision preserving device therapy for use in the physician's office and home care settings.
