Dr. Lange is excited to announce that Lange Eye Care and Associates is using a new at home monitoring device developed for macular degeneration patients called Foresee Home AMD Monitoring Program. Lange Eye Care and Associates is one of the first eye care centers in the country to utilize this technology, the first FDA cleared home telemonitoring system for macular degeneration patients. ForeseeHome allows patients to take a proactive role in preserving their vision at home. This advanced technology allows for the detection of early macular changes before the patients is aware. The device transmits the results of the test daily to a monitoring center via a cellular modem or phone line. This device has been clinically proven to be extremely sensitive at picking up the earliest change from dry macular degeneration to the more visually devastating form called wet macular degeneration. The data center then alerts the doctors office of the potential changes in the patients retina and allows for much earlier intervention by the retina specialist to lessen the potential damage!
