THE BEST WAY TO SAVE YOUR SIGHT
IS TO PREVENT VISION PROBLEMS
BEFORE THEY START
By identifying patients most at risk for
advanced forms of the disease, the Macula
Risk test offers the best defense in
preventing vision loss… early detection.
Dr. Powers and the Healthy Vision Institute is
the only Ophthalmology practice in Pinellas
and Pasco counties to offer a cutting edge
DNA test to help identify a patient’s risk
potential for developing Wet Macular
Degeneration.  Age-related Macular
Degeneration, is predominantly an inherited
disease, Macula Risk is a prognostic DNA
test that identifies individuals who have
inherited any of the disease-causing genes.
Macula Risk identifies individuals (1 in
every 5 patients) that are at highest risk of
vision loss due to AMD. Identifying these
patients early allows the eye-care
professional to implement a disease
management strategy focused on sight
preservation.


Increased risk (Macula Risk® Level 3, 4
and 5) patients may benefit from:
Increased frequency of eye examinations
Disease education and possibly ‘at-home’
Amsler Grid or Home PHP testing
Preventative eye vitamin therapy and
possibly nutritional supplements
Early diagnosis and treatment of wet AMD
with effective therapies
The tests are simple,
invaluable, and are
covered by most

insurance plans.
