NEW Course Spotlight: Rescuing the Retina
Date: Monday, October 20, 2014 @10:15 AM
Speaker: Tamer Mahmoud, MD,PhD
What an extraordinary time we live in where both surgical and non-surgical approaches to “rescue the retina” have and continue to be developed. We are still right on the cusp of discovery with new and improved drugs, drug delivery systems, and surgical techniques that are resulting in better and better visual outcomes for our patients. Advances in imaging technology and creative imaging techniques allow for more accurate definition of disease state, both prior to, during, and following intervention. The Ophthalmic Photographer plays a vital role in the documentation and follow-up of vitreoretinal interface, retinal, and choroidal disorders.
Upon completion of this course, the attendee will have an understanding of the surgical and non-surgical interventions that the contemporary retinal surgeon employs and what imaging technology and techniques have become indispensable in the care of today’s retina patients.
