Dark Adaptation Testing – early detection of macular degeneration
The AdaptDx® accurately measures the eye’s ability to adjust from bright light to darkness. This is called dark adaptation. When you turn off the light in a room and wait for your eyes to adjust, you are experiencing dark adaptation. Unusually slow dark adaptation has been shown in numerous clinical studies to be directly related to macular degenerative diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa. Clinical studies have also shown that the measurement of dark adaptation can detect macular degeneration before other ophthalmic instruments. We use the AdaptDx® to help discover macular degeneration as early as possible so we can provide our patients with the best possible care.
The AdaptDx® is made in the USA by MacuLogix, Inc. and is cleared for use by the FDA.
