Early Detection of Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration Detection & AMD Monitoring with Foresee PHP

Macular Degeneration Detection & AMD Monitoring with Foresee PHPPerformance Eyecare is now equipped with the Foresee PHP, an early detection and monitoring system that can help save your vision!

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is often referred to as dry AMD and wet AMD. While both affect your central vision, it is important to know the differences so you and your doctor can take appropriate action.

The Foresee PHP is the first comprehensive solution for detecting and monitoring the progress of AMD including the dangerous wet stage that generally does not exhibit symptoms at its early phase.

The Foresee PHP provides an easy non-invasive way to detect abnormalities in the macula that may suggest the presence of the severe form of AMD.

Foresee PHP Macular Degeneration Testing Offers

  • Non-invasive eye exams
  • Easy to perform
  • Test results within minutes
  • FDA cleared

Ongoing AMD Testing, Monitoring & Treatment

Regular monitoring with Foresee PHP, after initial detection, will let Dr. Massie determine if your AMD is progressing to the severe, wet form of the disease before the onset of the usual visual symptoms, and begin treatment at the most effective time.

Keratoconus

keratoconusKeratoconus is a rare eye condition in which the front surface of the eye, cornea, becomes thin and develops a cone-like protrusion. As light enters the keratoconic cornea it is distorted making it difficult to form a clear image on the retina, leading to blurred vision. Along with blurred vision there can also be difficulties with glare, irritated eyes, and frequent changes in your prescription. Keratoconus can make day-to-day activities difficult to perform and in extreme cases can lead to pain in the eye.

Keratoconus can be difficult to diagnose and may go undetected for long periods of time. Our office uses Corneal Topographical measurements to further categorize the level of Keratoconus. Keratoconus generally affects both eyes but each eye tends to progress at a different rate. Keratoconus tends to present in the second decade of life (20’s) but rare cases can occur after this time. Keratoconus will progress and worsen until the fourth decade of life (40’s) where is stabilizes. Severe cases can cause scarring of the cornea leading to more surgical options of correction.
