Preserve Vision Before It's Too Late
People with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often do not know they have the disease during its early stages. They may dismiss early warning signs, like trouble seeing at night, as part of the normal aging process. Ignoring these symptoms only delays diagnosis and leads to more significant vision loss.
Early AMD Detection with AdaptDx
There is no need to delay diagnosis and treatment. With the AdaptDx® test by MacuLogix®, your eye care professional can detect AMD as soon as three years earlier than any other test.
Your doctor may recommend you take the AdaptDx test, if you:
- Are over age 50
- Have a family history of AMD
- Experience night vision problems
The AdaptDx measures the time it takes for your vision to adjust to the dark. This is called dark adaptation. The simple test takes only about 10 minutes. You’ll look at a computer screen in a darkened room and press a button every time you see a flashing light. Your doctor will review the results with you.
Dark Adaptation Testing with AdaptDx
Simple and non-invasive, the AdaptDx test is easy to take.
The AdaptDx was painless and easy to follow. I had to push a clicker when I would see a certain light. They told me it was a little lengthy but it didn’t seem that long.
If the AdaptDx test indicates signs of early AMD, you and your doctor have valuable time to develop a plan to delay further symptoms.
Proactive steps to delay or prevent vision loss:
- Lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and exercise and quitting smoking
- Eye health supplements
- Blue light protection
- UVA and UVB sunglasses
Your doctor will also want to monitor your vision with AdaptDx testing regularly. If needed, you’ll be able to begin additional treatment as soon as late-stage AMD is detected.
