The prevalence of visual impairment and blindness caused by diabetic retinopathy is increasing worldwide. Early recognition, perhaps via a screening programme, and timely management would be of benefit.
What's in a name? When it comes to ophthalmology, a lot. Persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous—an old name that addressees only the status of the primary vitreous—needs updating, said Michael Trese, MD.
Retina surgeons should learn a variety of techniques to treat proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) so they can select which one to use on a case-by-case basis, recommended Andre V.
Throughout the body, any source of cellular damage (e.g., inflammation, infection, smoking, or high blood sugar) can liberate reactive oxygen species and set in motion an oxidative stress chain reaction that ultimately leads to tissue dam
First-line treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME) is overwhelmingly anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) drugs, with more than two-thirds of clinicians around the world prescribing them for this patient population.
Central serous retinopathy (CSR) is a heterogeneous disease with different phenotypes. Multimodal imaging is one way to understand more about the pathogenesis of the disease, and can be used to guide treatment.
Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment has undoubtedly revolutionized how ophthalmologists manage patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
An analysis of data from the FAME trials was undertaken to try to understand the final three-year visual and anatomic outcomes of patients treated with the fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant (Iluvien, Alimera Sciences) who exhibi
Recent years have brought major changes to the recommendations on screening patients for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) retinopathy.
Retinal vein occlusions (RVOs) are a frequent cause of retinal vascular disease in patients older than 50 years.
