Speaker Session Topic
Retinal Venous Occlusive Disease is a significant cause of acute vision loss. It is often associated with patients with systemic illnesses such as hypertension and diabetes. Vein occlusions can lead to development of macular edema and neovascularization which can impact vision long term. Treatment modalities for macular edema include anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections, steroid therapy, laser therapy, and on occasion surgical intervention. For neovascularization, anti-vegf agents, laser therapy, and surgical intervention for complicating vitreous hemorrhages and tractional retinal detachments are used. The most recent advances in therapy will be discussed.
