Dark Adaption

A new technology to diagnose age-related macular degeneration (AMD), dark adaptation can find changes to the macula years before traditional methods. Research has shown that our eye’s ability to see in a darkened environment weakens at the earliest stage of AMD. The accumulation of drusen deprives the rods and cones of the retina of the nutrients they need, and as these cells degenerate, it becomes more difficult to adjust to seeing in the dark.

The equipment from Maculogix is called the AdaptDX Pro. It is easy to operate and takes very little of the staff’s time since it has its own onboard AI assistant “Theia”. With AMD being more prevalent than diabetes, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy it provides eye care practices with huge opportunities to help their patients. Earlier detection allows for better long-term outcomes for patients, as well as being a profitable solution for practices.
