Due to the aging Baby Boomer population, it is estimated that the number of people with AMD is expected to double by 2020. Therefore, patient education is a critical step towards fighting vision loss and preserving healthy vision.
The risk factors above help differentiate those deemed to be at-risk of developing AMD. These risk factors are also highlighted in our risk assessment form, which can be used during the patient check-in process to help determine those that may require macular pigment testing.
The Next Generation in Macular Pigment Measurement
The QuantifEye® MPS II macular pigment screener is the most reliable and accurate device for measuring Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD), a key risk factor for AMD as well as other visual performance challenges.
MPOD can be modified through supplementation using EyePromise nutraceuticals containing the highest available levels of dietary Zeaxanthin – an important antioxidant and protective pigment for the eye scientifically proven to increase low MPOD levels – guaranteed!
