Detecting “Wet” AMD – Hands-On Opportunity

We’ve come a long way! Until now, the only way of “home monitoring” to detect vision changes in “dry” AMD has been the Amsler Grid. If you are at high-risk for developing “wet” AMD, you may now take a more proactive approach to your eye health. We had the opportunity to learn about and experience the Medicare-covered ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program. This technological breakthrough can detect subtle changes in your vision between office visits and alert your doctor to those changes. Keynote speaker and AMD expert, Richard Garfinkel, M.D., was joined by representatives of the ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program and invited participants to “try” the system at Sibley Medical Office Building on Saturday, November 19, 2016.
