SightRisk AMD Assessment Tool Makes North American Debut at VEW

SightRisk, a cloud-based AMD risk assessment tool, will launch to North America ECPs at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas on September 17, 2015. The service will be distributed in the Canada by MacuHealth, LLC via Bright Optical of Toronto.

SightRisk was developed by a team of research scientists who assessed both modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors of thousands of patients who were diagnosed with AMD through a detailed review of 300 published scientific manuscripts. The SightRisk questionnaire compiles and weighs based on the patient’s answers, creating a unique report that the ECP can review with their patients.

This report identifies young and healthy patients with risk profiles and helps the ECP make recommendations that may delay or prevent the onset of blindness from AMD later in life.

“It is important to take preventative action” said Frederic Jouhet, Managing Director of SightRisk. “Modifiable lifestyle factors such as smoking and a poor nutritional diet have been scientifically and clinically shown to increase the risk of developing AMD. Educating patients and continued monitoring of patient choices as early in life as possible will help reduce these risks.”
