Learn from Your Colleagues
Increasing Revenue with Dark Adaptation
Like many other optometrists, Dr. Jordan of Rinkov Eye Centers in Westerville, OH, transitioned to a medical practice model in order to preserve revenue for his clinic. By adopting AdaptDx technology to help him diagnose and manage AMD, Dr. Jordan and his colleagues were able to increase practice revenue by $196,177 in less than a year.
Maintaining Macular Health with Lifestyle Changes
As doctors work to slow the progression of AMD, patient noncompliance can often disrupt the treatment plans set in place. By utilizing AdaptDx technology, Dr. Pamela Lowe of Professional Eye Care Center in Niles, IL, was able to test patients’ dark adaptation and provide concrete data that showed the positive impacts of recommended lifestyle changes. As a result, patients became more committed to their treatment plans and were able to preserve vision despite an AMD diagnosis.
Improving the Rod Intercept
In this success story, Dr. Earley of Medina Vision and Laser Center in Medina, OH, tells the story of an AMD patient who, with prescribed carotenoid supplements, saw an improvement in her Rod Intercept™ (RI™) score as measured with the AdaptDx.
Detecting Subclinical AMD
Subclinical AMD is often missed with traditional fundus testing, as there are no visible drusen. By using AdaptDx technology, Dr. Gerson of Grin Eye Care in Olathe, KS, was able to detect impaired dark adaptation in otherwise healthy patients. Knowing that their vision was on the line, these patients committed to improving their overall health, and as a result, were able to preserve their eye health.
Early Diagnosis Creates Opportunity for Change
The chronic, progressive nature of the disease often means that patients only receive an AMD diagnosis once irreversible vision loss has occurred. In this success story, Dr. Oliver Lou of Signature Eye Care in Cedar Park, TX, explains how dark adaptation testing with AdaptDx technology gave one patient the opportunity to commit to smoking cessation and other lifestyle modifications before her vision was irreparably damaged by AMD.
Successful Integration of Dark Adaptation Testing
Dr. Krivacic of Las Colinas Vision Center in Irving, TX, explains how practice staff were able to improve patient care and increase practice revenue by working with Practice Management Consultants from MacuLogix®. Consistent utilization of a Risk and Symptom Assessment Form with patients allowed easier workflow integration of their AdaptDx device, differentiating their practice as an AMD Center of Excellence®.
