Dry AMD is a disease where the photoreceptor cells no longer function, what we do is we create a small incision in the retina, and we inject our premier implant in the subretinal space, we apply gas or oil to reattach the retina.”- Lloyd (05:23)“I think as humans inherent in the cellular level of the retina, we can see red, green, and blue, but then everything else is learned. When you're a kid, the teacher says, Oh, this is yellow. And now you learn that that's yellow.
