    New Insights into Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Geographic Atrophy

    This activity consists of three sessions, each of which should take approximately 1 hour to complete.

    At the conclusion of New Insights into Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Geographic Atrophy, you will be able to:
    • Identify the risk factors for AMD and the role of the complement pathway in the pathogenesis of GA
    • Describe the progression of early AMD to GA and monitoring parameters that can identify disease progression
    • Discuss the importance of routine eye exams and prompt referral when patients with AMD experience disease progression
    • Assess the efficacy and safety of emerging treatment options for GA secondary to AMD
    • Identify patient barriers to the optimal management of AMD and how they may be effectively addressed through education
    • Describe the benefits of comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the management of AMD

    Target Audience:
    This program is intended for optometrists who have significant numbers of people with age-related macular degeneration and geographic atrophy in their patient care panels and other eye care professionals with an interest in the treatment of age-related macular degeneration and geographic atrophy.

    Ocular surface disease (OSD): diagnostic, management, and clinical considerations in “dry eye”

    After completing Ocular surface disease (OSD): diagnostic, management, and clinical considerations in “dry eye” , you will be able to:
    • Discuss the causes, symptoms, and types of dry eye or ocular surface disease, emphasizing the pathophysiology that impacts treatment decisions
    • Describe the clinical implications of dry eye on contact lens or surgical success, and apply this knowledge in patient cases when discussing expectations with patients
    • Utilize patient history, ocular examination, and tear quantity tests to accurately diagnose ocular surface disease, with an emphasis on the importance of early diagnosis
    • Compare available and emerging treatments for ocular surface disease based on mechanisms of action and efficacy, with a focus on individualizing treatments to improve patient outcomes

    Target Audiences:
    Ophthalmologists, optometrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who practice or are interested in ophthalmology; and any other healthcare professionals with an interest in or who clinically encounter patients with dry eye.
