MacuLogix Announces Communication Guide for Eye Care Professionals Who Diagnose and Treat AMD

Product: An eBook that provides ECPs with advice about communicating to patients who have been diagnosed with Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Top Line: MacuLogix has released a step-by-step communication guide for eyecare professionals treating patients with AMD. The guide, “12 Ways to Turn an AMD Diagnosis into News That’s Worth Celebrating”, offers useful advice to help doctors improve delivery, with the goal of saving vision.
Close Up: Being diagnosed with a chronic, progressive disease that can lead to blindness is often difficult for patients to comprehend. For many eyecare professionals, it can also be particularly difficult to deliver this news to patients. Since the company’s AdaptDx automated dark adaptometer enables eyecare professionals to detect subclinical AMD three years earlier than it can be seen, MacuLogix published this eBook to help them deliver the diagnosis with confidence and improve long-term outcomes.
“How you deliver the message can make a significant difference in how a patient
perceives it—and how they act on it. To that end, good communication skills can set you apart as a practitioner and have a major impact on patients’ lives,” said Laurie Sorrenson, OD, owner of Lakeline Vision Source in Cedar Park, Texas, who collaborated with Maculogix to develop the guide. “Early diagnosis ought to be considered good news, but it can easily be misinterpreted as bad news, possibly resulting in less favorable outcomes.”
Vital Stats: “12 Ways to Turn an AMD Diagnosis into News That’s Worth Celebrating” is available online, free of charge, at www.maculogix.com/amdguide.
