What is Macular Degeneration and are you at risk?

Elysia Labita Sep 10, 2012

Cutting Edge Technology!  Macula Risk Testing and Information Seminars for Macular Degeneration.

As you may already know, Macular Degeneration is a devastating eye disease that has robbed millions of people of their useful eyesight.  The good news is that Age-Related Macular Degeneration (also known as AMD) can now be detected much earlier, and the best news is that there are now treatment and preventative strategies that were not available as little as one year ago!

We now are able to offer AMD patients and their families the unique opportunity to have a genetic test (that is painless and involves taking a swab sample from inside the cheek) that can help identify patients that are most likely to progress to advanced AMD with vision loss due to a genetic predisposition. This Macula Risk test is reimbursed by most healthcare insurances, including Medicare. The Arizona Eye Institute does NOT get paid for providing or interpreting the test. 

If you or your family members have been told you have AMD or your vision is deteriorating, it is with a sense of urgency that we offer and encourage you to take part in this testing so we may assist in evaluating your genetic risk. Furthermore, by identifying your own genetic risk category for developing visually disabling AMD, you are able to counsel your family’s loved ones so that they may be more pro-active in being vigilant for this potentially sight-threatening disease themselves, thereby taking advanced measures to reduce their own risk for the future.

I encourage you to share with your friends and family this remarkable advancement in DNA testing for potential vision loss from Macular Degeneration.
