The Macular Pigment Screener (MPS ll)

Macular pigment screenerThe Macular Pigment Screener (MPS ll) from Elektron Technology is a portable screening device enabling early detection of patients at risk of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) – the leading cause of vision loss in people over 50.

In 2011 as many as 11 million Americans had some form of macular degeneration, including both early and later stages of the wet and dry forms3. As the world population ages the number of people affected by AMD is expected to double within 20 years, creating a ‘Silver Tsunami’. This requires a preventative management strategy given that there is no cure for AMD.

Low levels of MP are a modifiable risk factor for AMD1 and once detected, need managing through diet, supplementation and lifestyle in order to minimise the risk of early onset AMD2.

Visual Health: Detect and Protect

The Global cost of AMD was $343 billion dollars in 2010 including US$255 billion direct health care costs.4
