  • Patients who have early or intermediate AMD in at least one eye to determine risk of progressing to advanced AMD

Why test your patients

  • Earlier intervention leading to better outcomes
  • Preserve vision by delaying disease onset or slowing disease progression
  • Helping you determine a personalized patient management plan
  • May increase patient compliance to alter modifiable risk factors such as diet or smoking
  • Patient risk stratification

Did you know?

Visible Genomics offers a clinically validated state-of-the-art age-related macular degeneration (AMD) risk assessment designed to: 

  1. Identify people earlier who are at-risk of developing AMD (i.e. family history of AMD) 
  2. Help provide AMD patients with personalized treatment options to prevent disease progression

 This insight is critical – and can help you as a physician determine the best personalized management plan for your patients with outcome goals of: 

  • Delaying onset of AMD with primary prevention

What is the Visible Genomics AMD Risk Assessment?

    • Visible Genomics now provides you with state-of-the-art clinical-grade AMD risk screening.
    • Visible Genomics’ AMD risk assessment is a comprehensive test that helps determine whether you are at risk of either developing AMD or progressing to late-stage AMD if you already have signs or symptoms of the disease.
    •  We combine a patient’s genetic status, ocular findings, demographic and behavior characteristics to deliver an accurate, reliable and clinically actionable AMD risk assessment.



Knowing this information can help you and your eye doctor take a proactive personalized approach to prevent or delay AMD.
