At-home OCT enables daily monitoring of patients with neovasular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other patients that need a lot of follow-ups.
With host Carey Powers, Dr. Anat Loewenstein dives into at-home OCT innovation, application, and adoption.
Dr. Loewenstein is Head of the Department of Ophthalmology and Vice Dean at Tel Aviv Medical Center. She’s also a fellowship-trained vitreoretinal surgeon and has been heavily involved in research related to early AMD detection.
Why all the fuss about at-home OCT? An at-home monitoring solution will potentially lessen the number of appointments for patients who don’t need them. More-frequent monitoring could also help catch disease changes sooner so doctors can facilitate treatment asap.
