The Changing Paradigm of Diabetic Retinopathy

The Changing Paradigm of Diabetic Retinopathy

September 19, 2019, 7:15 AM - 9:15 AM

Sands Convention Center - 901-V

This course provides an introduction to Type I and II diabetes including risk factors, prevalence and incidence. A review of the current classification system used for staging diabetic retinopathy is discussed. An update on the current treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME) and proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) based on numerous clinical trials is discussed in detail as well as the paradigm shift in the management of non proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR). A proactive approach to the management of complications secondary to diabetes is discussed to promote earlier treatment and potentially improve the visual outcomes and overall prognosis of our patients.
