A growing number of clinicians rely on AdaptDx to detect age-related macular degeneration in their adult patients. Our customers tell the story of how they’re fighting against blindness caused by AMD.
Equipment companies usually ship you a big box and you never hear from them again. That was not the case with MacuLogix and their AdaptDx. They spent 2 days with us and did a fantastic job training our whole office!
I strongly believe that if we can catch AMD at a very early stage and be really proactive with recommending supplements, blue light filters, sunglasses, telling them to watch their BMI, their cholesterol levels, that we can stop or slow this down and maintain their vision the rest of their life.
Outside of the lane, there are four essential diagnostic tests that I couldn’t practice without: OCT, fundus camera, visual field, and the AdaptDx.
The primary goal of every optometrist is to preserve the vision of our patients. Detecting, monitoring and treating AMD are imperative to our mission. We can detect earlier than ever before and manage AMD by doing all we can to prevent progression to advanced stages and complications such as CNV.
When I look at the future of managing macular degeneration, I see the AdaptDx as the essential tool in AMD management just as now I see the OCT as the essential tool in managing glaucoma in its earliest stages. By finding a disease early, and intervening appropriately we have the best chance of altering the course.
