Testing for Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Maculogix for AMD
AMD (age-related macular degeneration) is one of the leading causes of vision loss in the United States. We are equipped with the technology, tools, and education needed to help identify and manage AMD patients early before irreversible vision loss has occurred.
AdaptDx Pro is a revolutionary new way to test patients for AMD. It is backed by 20 years of proven clinical research to accurately and efficiently diagnose AMD.
An ERG (electroretinography) test is designed to measure the electrical response of the light sensitive cells in your eyes. You might know of them as rods and cones.
This is an advanced test that can detect several acquired disorders of the eye and is a vital test determine your eye health, including Macular Degeneration.
OCT for AMD
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive diagnostic instrument for imaging the retina. It is the technology for the future because it can enhance patient care. It has the ability to detect problems in the eye prior to any symptoms being present in the patient.
With an OCT, our eye doctors in Nampa, ID are able to see a cross-section or 3D image of the retina and detect the early onset of a variety of eye conditions and eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy (the top three diseases known to cause blindness)
Eye Omega Advantage® supports eye health with an equal ratio of EPA and DHA (1:1) and the inclusion of Lutein and Zeaxanthin. This is important for those patients who have a family history of Macular Degeneration. Part of your annual comprehensive eye examination will discuss family history and will examine your retina thoroughly every time to monitor any changes.
