Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 06: Macular Disease/Diabetic Retinopathy.
The goal of this program is to improve the treatment of macular disease and diabetic retinopathy. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Assess the efficacy and treatment burdens associated with laser photocoagulation and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents for the treatment of diabetic macular edema.
2. Summarize the data supporting the use of anti-VEGF agents for the treatment of macular edema due to branched and central retinal vein occlusions.
3. Educate patients about the safety and efficacy data from trials of ocriplasmin for the treatment of vitreomacular traction syndrome.
4. Optimize the treatment of diabetic retinopathy with appropriate control of hyperglycemia.
5. Choose appropriate patients to undergo treatment with fenofibrate to limit progression of diabetic retinopathy.
The original programs were presented by Craig M. Greven, MD, Richard G. Weaver Professor and Chair of Ophthalmology, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC.
