Activity Description

Advances in the management and treatment of retinal diseases continue to evolve through refinement of treatment protocols as well as the clinical evaluation of novel and emerging therapies. Keeping abreast of these innovations in disease management and their subsequent incorporation into clinical practice can be challenging, but are necessary to enhance visual acuity and improve patient outcomes. In this continuing medical education activity, experts in the field review recent advances in retinal imaging, as well as the surgical and therapeutic management of retinal diseases. Current and emerging treatment options for diabetic macular edema, diabetic retinopathy, neovascular age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, and uveitis will be discussed.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is retina specialists and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with retinal disease.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review recent innovations in imaging for the diagnosis and monitoring of retinal diseases.
  • Assess the evidence on safety and efficacy to optimize the use of conventional, new, and emerging medical treatments for retinal diseases.
  • Evaluate new technology and techniques used to improve outcomes in patients undergoing vitreoretinal surgery.
