A standard of care beyond vision care
The new ophthalmology.
Ophthalmology is being transformed. Changing demographics, innovative new technology, industry consolidation, declining reimbursements and the emergence of new, and much more complex patients are all working to create a new eye care.
And, yet, within all of this change there remains one constant—the patient comes first.

The new eye care patient.
Aging patients visit their eye care providers more than any other medical specialists. This means that eye care providers are uniquely positioned to meet a wider range of patients’ care needs as part of annual eye exams. Today, eye care providers are on the front lines of managing a number of diseases, including some of the most prevalent and damaging diseases in the world, including diabetes.
A new and proven solution.
HealthxMD is an ultrasound diagnostic platform that measures the velocity of blood in the ocular and neurovascular systems. With a turn-key program that places the ultrasound technology and technician in the eye care practice, a patient can be rapidly evaluated for their risk of:
- Evaluation for glaucoma (low tension
- or chronic open angle)
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Hypertensive Retinopathy
- Reversal of flow in the ophthalmic artery
- Evaluation for ophthalmic artery stenosis
- Evaluation for vascular lesions
- TIA, CVA, OVA
- Neurological vascular
- Ophthalmic ischemia
- Ophthalmic occlusion
- Detection of intracranial
- Detection of embolization
Services that can save lives.
Since 2018, HealthxMD has partnered with eye care practices to extend services that promote quality of vision, quality of care, and quality of life. Each diagnostic test is ordered by an ophthalmologist based on current state LCD (Local Coverage Determination) guidelines and reimbursed by most insurance carriers. Services contracted through HealthxMD do not require dedicated physical space and can easily be integrated into the daily schedule.
HealthxMD provides everything needed in the practice: from technicians to technology, including a designated ophthalmic Practice Development Manager, ensuring seamless integration of new services into the existing patient flow —enhancing each practice’s standard of care.
