    The Implantable Miniaturized Telescope (IMT) offers improved visual acuity and quality of life to patients with end-stage macular scars due to choroidal neovascularization. Although this implant requires a 10 mm incision, cataract extraction is best performed through micro incisions. The combination of micro incision cataract surgery and IMT implantation demonstrates the significance of suiting the incision to its purpose.
