Researchers aim for rare treatment of macular degeneration

Abstract:
However, one research team based at Boston College and the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester is trying to solve the problems of AMD and other eye diseases by creating nano-structured retinal implants. These are tiny devices placed in the eye to take the place of the malfunctioning rods and cones in the retina, explained Michael Naughton, a professor of physics at BC, whose team is working on the nanotechnology of the implant.
