Are you aware of the available resources for AMD?Since February is designated Age-Related Macular Degeneration Awareness month. For healthcare providers, there are numerous resources available to help promote awareness to patients and to encourage patients to continue (or start) annual visual exams.
Child with abnormal eye lesionsA 12-year-old girl is referred to the office after a routine dilated eye exam shows unusual retinal lesions. The child has been having headaches for the past 2 years that are described as mostly in the vertex with no other associated vomiting symptoms. Headaches are intermittent and usually relieved with ibuprofen.
Treat-and-extend protocol reduces burden of anti-VEGF treatment for DMEResults of the prospective TREX-DME study provide an evidence base for using a treat-and-extend protocol for administering anti-VEGF injections for eyes with diabetic macular edema.
Algorithms provide guidance for managing RVO-related macular edema
Contrast sensitivity device exposes vision limitations of reattachment patientsComputerized testing of contrast sensitivity function using the Sentio Platform (Adaptive Sensory Technology) may better quantify the visual limitations of patients than traditional letter acuity after retinal detachment repair.
Endoscope offers versatility over microscope for retinal surgeries
Isopropyl nitrate poppers pose maculopathy riskPoppers containing isopropyl nitrate may cause foveal maculopathy, researchers say.
Clinical findings supported by new OCTA technology
Clinical findings supported by new OCTA technologySince its FDA clearance, the significant potential of OCTA has been emphasized.
OCTA: Future Is bright, fast, and wide in ROPAdvances in optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) may enable more objective and accurate diagnosis of ROP in the future.
Subretinal therapy offers promise of lighter treatment burden for AMDRGX-314 gene therapy offers patients the potential for a lower treatment burden with one subretinal injection of a gene therapy delivering an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor protein.
