We offer a ‘Remote Training Program’ for AMD, RP and all other patients. This allows us to train the patient in their own home so they do not need to travel. The training is extremely effective and we prefer to train a patient with their spouse or family member present at the same time.
We train many of my patients simply over the phone. We can also use Skype or FaceTime to do the training. This is facilitated by the Microstim machine, which is fully automated.
The reason we use the Remote Training Program is because there are patients who live in other states, and we understand for many patients traveling can be difficult.
If a patient does want to travel, and prefers to be trained in-person, that’s also an option. However, the Remote Training Program is very successful and traveling is not necessary.
