Antioxidant Testing

The BioPhotonic Scanner is a groundbreaking device that measures the antioxidant levels in your skin. This is directly linked to the disease fighting antioxidant levels in your blood.

We are committed to improving your health and the best approach is to be proactive. Your general well-being and your eyes are connected. Studies have shown that certain vitamins and carotenoid antioxidants decrease the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. Knowing your current level of antioxidant protection is the first step to making improvements. Included with this test will be a discussion about general nutrition and ways to improve your levels, if needed.

Macular Degeneration

Are You At Risk?

  • The macula is the central area of the retina, the delicate tissue in the back of the eye.

  • A normal macula allows you to see fine details for activities like reading and driving.

  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common condition involving the macula.

  • AMD is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people 50 years of age or older in the U.S.

  • By age 60, one in ten people have signs of AMD. At age 75, this increases to one in three.

  • Most people with AMD are not diagnosed until they have already suffered severe vision loss.

  • While there is no cure, AMD can be slowed down with changes in nutrition and lifestyle.


Self-Test

Are you 50 years of age or older?
Do you have someone in your family with AMD?
Are you Caucasian (white)?
Do you smoke?
Are you overweight?
Do you have high blood pressure or cholesterol?
Do you have poor night vision?


If you answered yes to 3 or more questions, you have a greater risk of developing AMD.

  • Dark adaptation—the recovery of vision when going from bright light to darkness—is relatively quick in healthy eyes, but can be incredibly slow in eyes with AMD.

  • We offer the AdaptDx® test to measure dark adaptation. This 5-10 minute, non-invasive test can help detect AMD 3-4 years earlier than normal methods.

  • This screening test is not covered by insurance and will cost you $55 if we perform it as part of your examination. The results will be reviewed by your doctor and specific strategies to reduce risk of vision loss from AMD will be discussed at your visit.
