ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program is intended for use in the detection and characterization of central and paracentral metamorphopsia (visual distortion) in patients with AMD. It acts as an aid in monitoring the progression of disease factors. With early detection, treatment is more possible for AMD and better protects good, functional vision. This monitoring program is home based and meant to be use in conjunction with with routine eye exams at your doctor’s office.Dr. Rapkin is the only Indiana ophthalmologist in Indiana that offers this program. Foresee can often detect small changes in vision before you notice any symptoms yourself. With this program, you can test your eyes daily with the test only taking 3 minutes per eye. The results are automatically transmitted to the ForeseeHome Data Monitoring Center through a built-in cellular modem or phone line. The test results are compared to a normative database and to your personal baseline. If a statistically signifiant change in your test results is detected, Dr. Rapkin will be notified so he can schedule an appoint with you.
