Company Details


VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies, Inc., a Saratoga, CA-based developer of advanced visual prosthetic devices designed to improve vision in patients with end-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies (VisionCare) is a privately held specialty medical device company engaged in the research, development, manufacture, and marketing of proprietary implantable ophthalmic devices and technologies that are intended to significantly improve vision and quality of life for individuals with untreatable retinal disorders.

Our lead product, the Implantable Miniature Telescope (by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz), is the first FDA-approved implantable medical device demonstrated to improve vision and quality of life in individuals with the most advanced, irreversible form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – End-Stage AMD. End-Stage AMD is the leading cause of blindness in older Americans.

The telescope implant is integral to the CentraSight™ treatment program which has been developed to help patients follow the necessary steps for proper diagnosis, surgical evaluation, and postoperative care.

Our goal is to help patients reconnect to the things in life they love to see and do. To help achieve this, we will establish a high level of collaboration with our healthcare provider customers through a broad range of direct support programs and services.
