Preferential hyperacuity perimetry is a useful tool for monitoring the vision of intermediate AMD patients at home, with a low rate of FPAs between clinical visits. This rate is marginally dependent on the interval between scheduled visits.

The findings suggest that a majority of patients from a clinical practice setting at high risk or following treatment (but not needing treatment at a current visit) for neovascular AMD qualify to use the ForeseeHomeTM PHP for home monitoring of changes suggestive of new fluorescein angiographic leakage of choroidal neovascularization. Longitudinal studies are underway to correlate PHP changes to clinical changes.

In patients with intermediate AMD, frequent monitoring with a home-based PHP was applied successfully with stable test scores over several months. New cases of CNV were detected with a high sensitivity and specificity in asymptomatic patients. The ForeseeHome device shows promise as a telemedicine approach for early detection of conversion from dry to wet AMD.
