Patient Education Videos
When patients are engaged, they become more actively involved in their own healthcare. Educational videos are a great way to inform patients about AMD, dark adaptation testing with the AdaptDx® tabletop, and motivate them to be proactive about their macular health. You can use these videos in a variety of ways including adding them to your practice website, posting them on social media, or playing them in your waiting room.
Intructions for Using Videos
You can use videos in two different ways:
- Download the whole video file: This is necessary if you want to play the video on a TV in your waiting room or exam lane.
- Embed the video using a YouTube link: To add the video to your website or social media, the best practice is to copy and paste the YouTube embed link.
What Patients Can Expect During the AdaptDx Test
This video outlines testing procedures for the AdaptDx tabletop so your patients know what to expect.
AMD Warning Signs
This video explains that night vision problems are the first warning sign of early stages of age-related macular degeneration. Patients experiencing difficulty seeing at night should be tested for impaired dark adaptation.
About AMD, Its Risk Factors, and First Symptoms
This video has no sound, making it the perfect visual to put on the screen in your waiting room. It explains that trouble seeing at night is the first symptom of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a progressive disease that affects your patients’ central vision and is the leading cause of adult blindness in the developed world.
RI: An Early Warning Sign of AMD
In this video, your patients get to learn how a simple test can help determine if they have age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of adult blindness. Impaired dark adaptation, often described as problems seeing at night, is the earliest symptom of AMD and can help detect the disease at least 3 years before it can be diagnosed with current imaging technology.
Impaired Dark Adaptation: The Earliest Biomarker of Age-Related Macular Degeneration
While this video was originally developed to educate doctors, patients may find it valuable to learn how subclinical AMD is affecting cell growth beneath the surface – causing changes in their vision even before drusen are visible.
