Clinical Center of Innovation for
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

About the Clinical Center of Innovation for AMD

The Clinical Center of Innovation for AMD provides specialized vision evaluations including a first of its kind quick contrast sensitivity test. This machine will display letters of varying levels of blurriness, customizing the test to the patient’s response. Research shows this is one of the most precise methods of measuring vision in patients with AMD.

The Center is one of a dozen sites in the country to have the latest and most advanced OCT Angiography model currently available. This test is a non-invasive approach to further analyzing the structure of the eye involved with AMD.
