  • Overview

    More than 340 million people worldwide, including 11 million in the US, are affected by retinal diseases like age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and venous occlusive disease. These numbers continue to grow daily given our aging population and the high prevalence of risk factors. We’ve already shared our call for early diagnosis and intervention of diabetic retinopathy; now it’s time to turn our attention to age-related macular degeneration and venous occlusive disease. 

    In this video brief, our Steering Committee faculty share their messages for proactive screening, prompt referral, and appropriate management of age-related macular degeneration and venous occlusive disease. Tune in to find out what eye health professionals can do to ensure the best possible vision outcomes for their patients.
