Who Said There's Nothing You Can Do About Early AMD?

As optometrists, a diagnosis of AMD often means the end of the line for us. Late stage AMD needs urgent specialist intervention and earlier forms require the patient to do all the work with nutrition and self-monitoring on Amsler grids. We’re in the middle and keen to help. But what can we offer?

It’s time for us to rethink what’s possible with modern technology. As a chronic progressive disease, AMD can take years to progress to a point where the patient needs to be referred to a hospital. The goal of managing AMD is always to preserve visual function—not to wait until vision has already been lost. Although there is still no cure for AMD, early diagnosis, careful monitoring and proper care could postpone or even prevent visual acuity loss in many of your patients.

In this recorded webinar, Ian Cameron explains the underlying pathology, showing us the importance of early AMD diagnosis with dark adaptation testing, and discusses current treatment options that you can integrate into practice right now for the benefit of your patients.
