Early wet AMD detection: Impact on vision outcomes, challenges to detection, and a solution

  • Paul M. Karpecki, OD
  • John W. Kitchens, MD

Telehealth has become an integral offering of medically-modeled optometric practices, and will continue to play an important role after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. Home diagnostics are fast becoming essential tools to help expand an optometric practice’s telehealth program. During the pandemic, many intermediate dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients are at greater risk of undetected conversion for an extended period of time while practices prioritize which patients to reschedule for in-office examinations or book for telehealth appointments.

Learn why protecting these at-risk patients through home diagnostics and remote monitoring is so important. Paul Karpecki, OD and John Kitchens, MD discuss the unmet needs of the intermediate AMD population, the importance of detecting wet AMD early, and the impact of severe vision loss on patients’ lives.
