April 27, 2017

A study found a high rate of undiagnosed age-related macular degeneration in primary eye care practices and advocated the need for improved detection strategies.

Participants were recruited from primary eye care practices in Birmingham, Alabama, and consisted of 1,288 eyes of 644 adults aged 60 years or older who had previously received a comprehensive dilated eye examination and did not have a diagnosis of AMD. Digital color fundus photographs of both eyes were captured, evaluated and graded according to the Clinical Age-Related Maculopathy Staging system.
