33rd MidWinter Retina Symposium: Retina Update 2015

Wauwatosa, WI US
February 14, 2015

To update eyecare professionals in the state of the art of diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases.

Recent years have witnessed unprecedented expansion in the number of treatment decisions clinicians face when treating patients with retinal disease.   This is due to progress in both the diagnostic and therapeutic arenas.  For more common retinal vascular diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion, there now 5 pharmacologic treatment options.  High impact clinical trials for therapy of common retinal disease are published on a monthly basis. Simultaneously, new technology for imaging the retina is being developed, and integrated into clinical decision-making. It is difficult for practitioners to assimilate the data from the numerous sources, put them in context, and integrate them into their practices.

Summarize the data, provide objective interpretation of the data, and suggestions for practical application into patient care.

Attendees will be informed of topics and learning objectives in advance of the symposium.  Ample time for questions and answers will be allocated to each topic.  Attendees will be asked to grade the speakers, and the program overall for quality and to what degree the objectives were met.
