The Therapeutic Pipeline for Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Macular Edema

Dr. Arghavan Almony
Carolina Eye Associates, North Carolina, USA

Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) antibodies have been the pillar of therapy for patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME) for nearly two decades. Unfortunately, anti-VEGF therapy requires frequent, repeated intravitreal injections that pose significant burdens for patients, their caregivers, and the healthcare system. Additionally, anti-VEGF therapy is completely ineffective for patient with atrophic age-related macular degeneration. Angiopoietin (Ang) pathways have recently shown the potential to provide a new treatment target that can reduce inflammation in neovascular AMD and DME. Likewise, the cleavage of complement protein C5 is being targeted for treatment options in geographic atrophy. In this session, we will focus on current and emerging therapies for AMD and DME.

Maximizing Visualization during Diagnostic and Laser Procedures of the Posterior Segment

Dr. KV Chalam
Loma Linda University Health, California, USA

During this live webinar, we will discuss the best techniques and technologies used to diagnose and clinically treat diseases of the posterior segment. We will go over the optimal lenses to examine different patients from a retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) patient in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to an adult patient with diabetes who needs to be evaluated for clinically significant cystoid edema (CSME). The speaker will also discuss which lenses provide the best visualization for different anatomic regions of the posterior segment at the slit lamp and also with the indirect headset, including tips and tricks to help during laser procedures like pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP), treating horse shoe tears, and CSME. Questions received during registration and during the webinar will be discussed.

The Past, Present, and Future of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)

Dr. Alex Levin
Chief, Pediatric Ophthalmology and Ocular Genetics, Flaum Eye Institute, Rochester, NY, USA

The clinical diagnosis of typical RP has been recognized for decades. With the exciting advances in the dynamic field of ocular genetics and new therapies emerging to now treat this disease it is now imperative that ophthalmologists turn the well-recognized phenotype into a genotype by carefully considering the whole patient, their family and the details of their presentation to make a diagnosis of a specific type of RP. In the talk, the speaker will go over the clinical and genetic work-up of these patients as well as the other ocular and systemic findings that such patients may have and how to best lead these patients towards clinical trials and possible treatment. We will discuss the current and emerging therapies to maximize patient outcomes. There is an exciting revolution occurring in inherited retinal diseases. All eye health professionals should be aware of what we currently (and soon will) have available to help these patients.
