There are two types of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Dry macular degeneration is the more common form of the diseases and causes the eye to slowly lose vision. Wet macular degeneration is the more severe form of the disease and is the result of fluid leaking into the macula. Wet AMD can lead to sudden vision loss and permanent damage to the eye.
While not every instance of dry AMD results in wet AMD, it is a common result of untreated or undertreated dry AMD. This is because the deterioration caused by dry AMD leaks blood into the macula. For a long time, it has been difficult for doctors to track the deterioration caused by AMD. More often than not, patients had to make constant visits to a ophthalmologist to ensure there was no serious advance in the deterioration of dry AMD.
How Can Notal Vision™ ForseeHome Help?
Notal Vision ForseeHome can make regular visits to the clinic a thing of the past. Notal Vision ForseeHome is the first FDA-cleared at-home monitoring system for AMD. Put simply, the ForseeHome allows you to conduct self-tests of your macular degeneration and send the accompanying data directly to your doctor. Don’t worry about needing a medical license to complete these tests. Notal Vision designed the whole process to be as simple as possible, so you can easily work them into your daily routine.
After you complete a test, the data will be sent through a phone line or cellular modem directly to the Notal Vision Data Monitoring Center. The data is then uploaded to a secure site that both you and your doctor can easily access. In the event of a statistically significant change in test scores, both you and your doctor will be notified immediately.
More testing means less time for vision issues to become severe. With the help of Notal Vision, we can help slow down the damage AMD causes. The only way to get a ForeseeHome device is by recommendation from your eye doctor, so ask about the Notal ForseeHome at your next AMD checkup!
