VIDEO: Clinician tests dark adaptation in all older patients

LAS VEGAS – Jeff Gerson, OD, said here at Vision Expo West that he tests the dark adaptation of every patient in his practice older than 60.

“The idea is to find subclinical macular degeneration and taking advantage of that diagnosis and treating our patients and hopefully preventing them from having a problem,” he said.

He compared this to most clinicians deciding to treat patients with preperimetric glaucoma.
