AMD Screening

At Primary Eyecare, we are a Center of Excellence for Macular Degeneration.

At Primary Eyecare, Dr. Murphy is fully equipped to screen and manage patients at risk for or have age-related macular degeneration using state of the art technology, AdaptDx and QuantifEye. We are currently the only practice in Saint Louis with the AdaptDx and are proud to be a Center of Macular Degeneration Excellence.

Risk Factors for Age-Related Macular Degeneration:

  • A family history of AMD

  • Obesity

  • Smoking and/or exposure to secondhand smoke

  • Female

  • Light colored skin

  • Light colored eyes

Although there is no cure for macular degeneration, Dr. Murphy works closely with her patients to monitor and reduce the progression of the disease through diet modification, AREDS 2 eye supplements and regular follow-up visits.
