In our latest PIE Talks episode, we chatted with Dr. Sid Schechet, a forward-thinking ophthalmologist and retina specialist at the Elman Retina Group in Baltimore, Maryland.
Digital health, which has the ability to help in many areas of eye care, is especially impactful in AMD.

One innovation involved here is the ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program from the Notal Vision Monitoring Center, among other areas of digital health progress. Check out our discussion for a glimpse into where the future of AMD detection meets the now.
