How Dark Adaptation Testing and Simplified Treatment Guidelines Can Help Minimize AMD Vision Loss. 

A recent JAMA study clearly demonstrates that optometrists and ophthalmologists frequently fail to catch age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In fact, the cross-sectional study, which included 1288 eyes (644 adults) from patients enrolled in the Alabama Study on Early Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ALSTAR), revealed that doctors are missing AMD diagnoses about 25% of the time. What’s even more shocking is that 30% of undiagnosed eyes have large drusen. In light of this, it’s no surprise that 78% of AMD patients are first diagnosed with AMD after experiencing vision loss. MacuLogix is working side-by-side with optometrists, ophthalmologists and retina specialists to raise awareness about best practices in AMD management and to diagnose disease before vision loss occurs.
