    Current status of home monitoring technology for age-related macular degeneration

    Purpose of review Evidence suggests that patients present with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a delayed fashion. Increased lesion size associated with this delay directly impacts visual acuity. Upon treatment initiation, patients are monitored largely with optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology to determine the need for treatment. Home-monitoring systems using preferential hyperacuity perimetry (PHP) and OCT may optimize management. Recent findings Comparison of Age-related Macular Degeneration Treatment Trials study and American Academy of Ophthalmology's Intelligent Research in Sight registry data suggest smaller lesion size and better visual acuity upon choroidal neovascularization (CNV) capture are associated with better final ...
