Early wet AMD detection with ForeseeHome®
Detecting wet AMD at the earliest possible moment is critical to long-term visual outcomes; baseline visual acuity is the strongest predictor of long-term visual acuity. Unfortunately, too few patients present with functional vision, ≥20/40, at the time of wet AMD diagnosis, which may lead to a poor prognosis.
Drs. Joseph Coney and Veeral Sheth discuss their experience with the ForeseeHome AMD monitoring program, the only FDA cleared, Medicare covered, at-home monitoring program proven to help detect wet AMD at the earliest possible moment.1 Learn how ForeseeHome detected wet AMD early and helped Drs. Coney and Sheth protect and preserve the vision of their patient.
