The retina practice enters the future of digital health: Dr. Gentile’s perspective on remote home monitoring for AMD patients
Ronald C. Gentile MD, FACS, FASRS is a Professor of Ophthalmology, Director of the Ocular Trauma Service (posterior segment), and Surgeon Director at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. During the Covid Pandemic, in hard-struck NYC, Dr. Gentile realized the need to connect with his patients remotely and monitor their vision using the latest digital health technology and innovative eye health solutions. He partnered with RemoniHealth and deployed their vision-as-a-service (VaaS) platform with the Macustat ® remote vision monitoring test – a multi-modal virtual test that can be accessed by patients anywhere and on any consumer electronic device such as a laptop, desktop, or tablet and/or a smartphone. The Macustat test is an on-demand digital macular function scan of the central retina using next-generation digital Amsler Grid, with a dynamic function defect registration scan, photoreceptor stress test, hyperacuity perimetry, and visual acuity.
