Support Statement

This activity is supported by an independent medical education grant from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.


Activity Description

Intravitreal therapy has rapidly evolved to become a mainstay of treatment for many retinal diseases, offering numerous patients delayed or arrested disease progression, as well as the possibility of regaining lost vision. The discovery that intravitreal therapy can be effective in treating neovascular AMD (nAMD) has spurred further research exploring the outcomes of treatment regimens using this approach. Further, newer protocols that allow for longer intervals between treatments are now available and hold promise in lessening the treatment burden. Yet, ophthalmologists are challenged to select the most appropriate dosing regimen and are unsure of the effects of residual retinal fluid after treatment. In this Curbside Consults continuing medical education activity, expert clinicians discuss a challenging case in the management of a patient with nAMD.


Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is retina specialists and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration.


Learning Objective

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to assess how the presence of residual retinal fluid may influence visual outcomes in patients being treated for neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
