Spotting the signs of AMD
Despite advancements in end-stage AMD treatments featuring heavily in the news lately it is important not to neglect the simple fact that preventing AMD is much easier than intervening the condition’s effects.
The most prominent problem with the telescopic implant, which could also be an issue with the telescopic lens also, is that it costs several thousand pounds per treatment. This price means that many who could benefit from the treatments are highly unlikely to receive them.
By detecting the signs earlier AMD sufferers are able to find medications which can slow the progression of the disease and possibly even revert the effects before it reaches a stage that cannot be treated.
A simple way of detecting a risk of advanced AMD quickly and accurately is through the use of an MPS II macular pigment reader. The MPS II delivers results in just 90 seconds, allowing eye-care professionals to dispense the right treatments and advice to a patient before the condition has time to progress any further.
