The LEAD multi-center trial1 has shown that 2RT® Retinal Rejuvenation achieves a 77% reduction in the rate of progression to late stage AMD for over three quarters of early stage AMD patients, according to a post hoc analysis.2
77% reduction in the rate of progression to late-stage AMD in 76% of suitable patients who received 2RT® over the 36 months of the LEAD trial.

Retinal Rejuvenation Therapy, 2RT®, stimulates a biological healing process that results in cellular rejuvenation, renewing the entire transport mechanism of the retina and improving the hydraulic conductivity of Bruch’s membrane. This rejuvenation process preserves or improves functional vision and reduces disease progression — without causing collateral damage to the overlying photoreceptor rods and cones of the retina. 2RT® offers the potential to intervene earlier in the treatment of AMD before significant vision loss has occurred to slow or halt the degeneration process.
