Our practice offers MPOD testing –Macular Pigment Optical Density, which measures the density or thickness of your macular pigment. As a modifiable risk factor, you can help manage your risk for macular degeneration. It’s fast, safe, and affordable!
More than 3 million eyes have been accurately measured with the QuantifEye MPOD measurement instrument. Optimal MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density) scores:
•Reduces a key risk factor for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (low macular pigment)
•Protects the photoreceptors in the back of the eye from harmful blue light
•Can improve visual performance including acuity, light sensitivity, glare, and contrast sensitivity.
The MPOD exam takes only a few minutes, is non-invasive, and your MPOD can be re-measured in 6 months to demonstrate that supplementation can positively affect your macular health
