Learning Objectives

  • Participants will leave this presentation with an understanding of the newest anti-VEGF soon to enter the market and what potential benefits this treatment may have for their shared patients in areas such as prolonged treatment intervals.
  • Participants will leave with an understanding about a new breakthrough treatment for AMD in the form of the nanosecond laser ie Retinal Rejuvination Therapy (2RT), its mechanism of action and the most recent pivotal clinical trials associated with its use. They will have a firm understanding of its role in treatment and in the prevention of late AMD in their patients.

This will specifically give the attendees a better understanding of what is available for those difficult refractive patients suffering from dry eye, irregular corneas and idiosyncratic visual requirements.
