Macular Disease Predictive Testing
Macular disease predictive testing involves the use of the Sight Risk AMD Calculator in conjunction with macular pigment density measurements obtained using the Zeiss Visucam 200 and expert advice based on the results of such tests. The Sightrisk AMD Calculator calculates your predicted risk of developing macular degeneration based on your known risk factors for the condition.
The system immediately generates a predicted percentage risk from age 55 to 100 as a graph as well as a list of recommendations on how to reduce this risk. Using this percentage as a guide the optometrist will be able to recommend appropriate actions that may reduce your risk of developing macular degeneration later in life.
