Practical Opportunities in AMD Management

Optometrists share and compare notes on how each has approached detecting AMD as early as possible and monitoring disease progression. Although AMD can result in blindness, their experiences are saturated with hope and backed by the promise of clear, published scientific evidence.

Diagnosing and Treating Early AMD at Your Practice

Advances in early AMD detection has made it possible for primary eye care professionals to own the diagnosis and management of this disease. However, since this information is so new, it’s been difficult for clinicians to keep up with the current science and understand how patients can benefit.

Watch this recording of our panel of experts who are leading the charge in AMD care as they answer questions and share practical knowledge for how they’ve successfully integrated AMD management into their medically oriented practices.

Who Said There’s Nothing You Can Do About Early AMD?

Presenter:

Ian Cameron
Independent Prescribing Optometrist in Edinburgh, United Kindgom

As optometrists, a diagnosis of AMD often means the end of the line for us. Late stage AMD needs urgent specialist intervention and earlier forms require the patient to do all the work when it comes to nutrition and self-monitoring on Amsler grids. We’re in the middle and keen to help. But what can we offer?

In this recorded webinar, Ian Cameron explains the underlying pathology, showing us the importance of early AMD diagnosis with dark adaptation testing. He then goes on to discuss current treatment options that you can integrate into practice right now for the benefit of your patients.

Over the past 15 years, tremendous advances have been made in regard to our understanding of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, information overload has made it difficult for clinicians to keep up with the science, much less understand the implications for patient care. This webinar brings together the latest information to deliver practical, evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of AMD that can be implemented in a medically-oriented practice.
