Did you know that 59% of physicians in practices with under 25 clinicians can expect to receive a performance penalty as high as 4% under MACRA and MIPS in 2019?1 And with the maximum penalty rising to 9% by 2022, you could easily lose thousands of dollars a year.
Fortunately, if you have the right tools and know how to use them, you could be one of the strong performers who will earn a bonus payment for their performance. Read our complimentary white paper to learn:
- How MIPS could impact your practice’s revenue
- What ophthalmologists’ participation options are
- The key tasks you can complete now to start preparing
- 6 EHR capabilities that can make or break your MIPS performance
Non-advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) does not profoundly affect vision, but is associated with gradual but relentless visual decline and, in many cases, progression to advanced and blinding AMD (atrophic and/or neovascular). Supplementation with antioxidants that include the macular carotenoids has been shown benefit patients with non-advanced AMD. A recent randomized, clinical trial has shown that a formulation containing all three macular carotenoids (in L:MZ:Z [mg] ratio of 10:10:2; MacuHealth with LMZ3 and MacuHealthPlus+ ) outperforms a MZ-deficient formulation in patients with non-advanced AMD, both in terms of visual improvements and in terms of observed increases in macular pigment.
Medical foods are an emerging category of product, formulated to address nutritional deficiencies relating to specific diseases or conditions. This whitepaper provides an insight into:
· The importance of targeted nutrition for eye health
· The medical food category: Guidelines, market size, regulations
· Macular pigment: Risk factor, biomarker, vision performance
· Lumega-Z: the first and only medical food developed to restore and maintain the macular pigment

Introducing the Anterior Segment Surgeon’s Dream Laser: Tango Reflex
The Ellex Tango Reflex™ is a new, advanced laser that provides you with four (CPT-code) treatment modalities - SLT, Laser Floater Removal (laser vitreolysis), Capsulotomy and Iridotomy – in a single footprint, offering solutions for POAG, ACG and secondary cataract patients.
The attached article by glaucoma specialist Nathan Radcliffe, MD, dispels four common misconceptions about SLT in the treatment of POAG patients:
- SLT is a last resort
- SLT reimbursement is complicated
- SLT must be performed unilaterally
- SLT must be repeated every two years
Learn about new technological advances in surgical microscopy that have been recently incorporated in a new ophthalmic platform from Leica Microsystems, with insights from Iqbal “Ike” Ahmed, MD, James Katz, MD, and Seenu Hariprasad, MD.
