Updates on Retinal Diagnostic Technologies, Surgery and Post-Operative Care

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.  Webinar - Remote Learning Event.

Description

This live remote learning course is designed to provide clinicians with current information on diagnostic technologies, surgery and post-operative care when addressing retinal diseases.  The first half of the course will introduce OCT-Angiography (a new diagnostic retinal imaging technology), how to accurately interpret the results of this technology, and how this technology alters the treatment and management of retinal diseases.  The second half of the course provides strategies for the proper identification and triaging of patients with retinal detachment, macular hole, and macular pucker, and the post-operative care needed by these patients.  Case scenarios and examples of retinal surgery for retinal detachment, macular hole and macular pucker will be provided.

Presenters

Dr. Scott Westhouse and Dr. Nate Pezda.

Who Should Attend

Optometrists, ophthalmic specialists, general ophthalmologists, fellows and ophthalmology residents encompassing all levels of experience and knowledge.

Objectives

  1. Understand and discuss the difference between OCT, OCT-Angiography, and Fluorescein angiography, when it is appropriate to use OCT-A, and how OCT-A alters treatment and management of specific retinal diseases.
  2. Better understand retinal diseases for which surgery is an indication, surgical techniques, and post-operative care for retinal detachment, macular hole and macular pucker.
