Description

A growing body of evidence suggests that both genetic and nutritional factors contribute to the development and progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). To some extent, AMD prevention and management may be nutrition-responsive. This course discusses the epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of AMD with an emphasis on clinical application of new knowledge. Case examples are used to illustrate clinical applications.

Objectives

Objectives
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Describe the burden of AMD in the US and the world.
2. Explain how nutritional factors contribute to the development and progression
of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
3. Describe the basic principles of molecular genetics in AMD.
4. Describe the basic principles of optical coherence tomography (OCT)
including interpretation of findings in AMD.
5. Explain the procedure for various posterior segment imaging technologies to a
patient.
6. Interpret the test results for angiography (both FA and ICGA).
7. Apply new technologies in the optometric management of AMD.
8. Describe breakthrough treatments, including nutritional, for both dry and wet
forms of AMD.
