Wyomissing Optometric Center eye doctors lead the way in early diagnosis of Age-related Macular Degeneration

Wyomissing Optometric Center received the first AdaptDx unit off the assembly line in the U.S. more than 2 years ago. The AdaptDx diagnostic technology aides us in the early diagnosis of Age-related Macular Degeneration for at-risk patients. This diagnostic technology is especially helpful for patients who have no other clinical signs of Age-related Macular Degeneration.

Dr. Glenn S. Corbin was recently interviewed by Primary Care Optometry News. He stated,
“We are able to find people that would have normally been undiagnosed until a later stage of the disease,” he continued. “I would have never thought that a couple of drusen could indicate an early diagnosis of AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration). Now the technology tells me their dark adaptation is abnormal and they do have early signs of AMD.”

Corbin added: “I screen patients as a precaution or if there’s a family history of AMD. Clinically, we may not observe AMD signs, but based on abnormal DA testing results, we can feel confident that they have the disease.”

Wyomissing Optometric Center is proud to lead the way in advanced diagnostics and early detection of Age-related Macular Degeneration. We strive to provide the Best Care In Sight!
