Macular Pigment Screening

Macular Pigment Screening

DD76B3BC2B20746BC3FB3BDB62985AF4 (1)The MPOD is a simple non-invasive test which allows your optometrist to analyse your risk of developing age related macular degeneration (AMD).

We can advise on reducing your risk by changing lifestyle, stopping smoking, protecting your eyes from harmful UV radiation and general health considerations. We may also suggest nutritional supplements, in particular lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, which are substances found at the macular region of the eye.

Regular testing can monitor your macular pigment level to ensure that the changes you make are having the desired effect and increasing your levels of macular pigment. The MPOD is now available at Farmilo Optometrists on Francis Street.
