Topic:  What to do when it is not AMD?  –  Role of multimodal imaging in defining non-AMD macular pathologies 

There are many conditions that cause macular disease that may simulate AMD. This talk will highlight the role of multimodal imaging – colour fundus photography, OCT, OCTA and Fluorescein angiography in diagnosis of non-AMD diseases in the macula. This will highlight the cues to look for to differentiate these conditions from AMD to help make a decision regarding referral and treatments.

Learning Objectives

  2. To help pick up signs that differentiate these conditions from AMD
  3. Understand which of these conditions need treatment vs observation and the treatment options
