Looking at AMD Through Patients' Eyes: Viscira Virtual Exhibit Educates Physicians by Personalizing Serious Eye Disease
Date:1/29/2009

preciate the impact of the disease on patient lives. Physicians commented that this virtual experience would be very helpful in their communication with Wet AMD patients, family members and caregivers. The exhibit also provided a unique opportunity for our client to have meaningful follow-up discussions with participants."

"Eye care specialists welcome any tools and information that can help us educate our patients and their families on this leading cause of blindness," said Richard Wong, M.D., a board-certified ophthalmologist practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. "This exhibit and the applications that Viscira is developing will help us communicate more effectively with patients as part of a comprehensive treatment approach."

Physician Insights May Indicate Shift in Treatment Approach
Over 700 attendees at the AAO meeting viewed the EyeMac program. More than 78 percent of users said that the daily experience of a patient living with wet AMD was either significantly or somewhat different from what they had expected. More than 87 percent said that this greater awareness would significantly or somewhat change the way they would treat their patients.

Gulezian added, that, as a result of the exhibit's success at AAO, Viscira will be working with the client to deploy the virtual simulation model in other learning applications, including in the physicians' office, and in patient advocacy and sales training materials. "We are committed to fully leveraging the program across the multiple audiences involved in improving Wet AMD education and treatment," he added.
