Heru’s Dark Adaptation Fills the Gap
• Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive chronic disease of the central retina accounting for 8.7% of all blindness worldwide1.
• Early AMD patients exhibit moderate to severe impairment of dark adaptation (DA) even in the absence of visual acuity loss4–6.
• A test to probe rod function in dark adaptation can be used as a clinical outcome measure in studies tracking the progression of AMD, or more practically, a diagnostic tool targeting the identification of early AMD4.
• A patient’s rod function can be easily examined with Heru’s dark adaptation test which is billable to insurance (CPT 92284) and co-billable with visual fields, OCT and/or office visits.
