POTENTIAL ACUITY METER
The Potential Acuity Meter (PAM) is an instrument that predicts how much improvement in vision a patient may achieve with cataract surgery. This test is conducted before the actual surgery is performed, as a predictive measurement..
The Potential Acuity Meter provides information that allows for more realistic post surgery expectations with respect to your vision. The procedure is non-surgical, quick and painless. You are able to avoid the risk involved with cataract surgery if the outcome will not result in an improvement in your vision.
The Potential Acuity Meter is a technology that is not covered by OHIP. Your private insurance may cover all or part of the cost. If you decide not to have the test, you will still have access to all the medically necessary tests and procedures for your retinal condition covered by OHIP.
