Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 15: Disease of the Macula.
The goal of this program is to improve the prevention and treatment of macular disease. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Recommend appropriate dietary supplements and changes in lifestyle to reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
2. Elaborate on the various research models for AMD and the results of different treatments in these models.
3. Summarize the soluble and insoluble factors important for the development of AMD.
4. Evaluate the data from the various clinical trials testing different dosing algorithms for treatment of AMD with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents.
5. Balance considerations of efficacy and treatment burden when prescribing the dosing regimen for anti-VEGF agents.
The original programs were presented by Lawrence J. Ulanski II, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary, Chicago, Peter Campochiaro, MD, Eccles Professor of Ophthalmology and Neuroscience, Retina Division, The Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, and Jennifer I. Lim, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology and Director of the Retinal Service, University of Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary, Chicago.
