People with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often do not know they have the disease during its early stages. They may dismiss early warning signs, like trouble seeing at night, as part of the normal aging process. Ignoring these symptoms only delays diagnosis, which can lead to more vision loss.
AdaptDx Dark Adaptometer
The AdaptDx [adapt-dee-ex aids in the detection and management of AMD. It measures the time it takes for your vision to adjust to the dark. This is called dark adaption. The simple test takes less than 10 minutes. You’ll look into the device in a darkened room and press a button every time you see a flashing light. Nothing will touch your eye. If the Adapt Dx test indicates signs of early AMD, you and your doctor have valuable time to develop a plan to delay disease progression.
What is RI?
“RI” stands for Rod Intercept™, the time it takes for the eye to adjust from bright light to darkness. When you take the AdaptDx test, the device calculates your RI number and provides your doctor with critical information to help determine your AMD status.
Is the AdaptDx test covered by insurance?
We may be able to bill the test to your insurance provider if there is a medical diagnosis related to your AMD or you are experiencing trouble seeing, if not, the AdaptDx test may require a modest out of pocket expense.
