Prevention of disease has the ability to not only improve overall patient health, but also to save our healthcare system financially in the long run.

    Early disease detection is critical in order to make our current therapies more effective by treating diseases at earlier stages. Technologies ranging from AMD home monitoring systems to nonmydriatic fundus photographs to screen diabetic retinopathy have significantly enhanced our efforts in this capacity and will continue to have advances for years to come.
