Here is a great article that looks specifically at the long term benefits to patients using at home monitoring. With the expanse of telemedicine and remote monitoring, it seems very natural for patients to seek out diagnostics devices that can help them monitor potential problems with their vision more precise, giving their doctors more precise and accurate data. Thus, the quicker negative data can be brought to the doctors attention, the faster treatments plans can be developed to aide in preserving as much vision as possible. – C EPPERSON, MyEYES.
