Visit booth 203 to learn about subclinical AMD detection at Academy 2019

Our team is looking forward to discussing how our AdaptDx® dark adaptometer can help improve patient outcomes and grow your practice at this year’s American Academy of Optometry meeting in Orlando.

Research conclusively shows that dark adaptation function is dramatically impaired from the earliest stages of the disease, with increasing deterioration as the disease progresses.1 Usually expressed as a night vision complaint, you can use impaired dark adaptation to identify patients with subclinical AMD at least three years before drusen are visible.

One of the great things about the AdaptDx is that it’s a very straightforward test to understand as a practitioner. It’s basically a yes-or-no test. If somebody has impaired dark adaptation, which means their ability to recover from a bright light takes longer than 6.5 minutes, we know with 90% sensitivity and specificity that the patient has macular degeneration.
