The article discusses sulcus-implanted mirror telescopic intraocular lens (IOL) for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other macular disorders. The LMI-SI reportedly helps to improve visual results after cataract surgery with certain comoborbities. It describes the LMI-SI as a telescopic lens that uses mirrors to magnify the central image while the peripheral field remains normal. It talks about the surgery for implanting the lens, the results, and advantages of the lens.
