About ForeseeHome™ AMD Monitoring Program
The ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program is a prescription-based, comprehensive telemonitoring and data management system that extends the management of AMD to patients’ homes between office visits. The test results are transmitted to a central monitoring center that will alert, physicians to immediate, significant visual field changes in their patients, so that patients can be recalled for timely follow-up and necessary treatment may be initiated. The ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program utilizes a simple to use device based on preferential hyperacuity perimetry, a form of visual-field testing, to identify minute visual distortions, or metamorphopsia, for the detection of early CNV development.
