Also known as the Myopia Support Device
LA Eye, LLC has the patented, Myopia Support Device (MSD), also known as Titanium Scleral (Macular) Buckle, in development for application in various stages of pathologic myopia. MSD is designed to address the anatomic root cause of the problem in pathologic myopia helping to reshape the contours of the posterior sclera to a more natural form and reduce the axial length so to treat or prevent blinding myopic maculopathy. An additional gain appears to be a large reduction of the refractive error.
