Panel Discussion 

Meeting Summary 

For the nAMD talk

nAMD is a  long-life disease. Despite rapid and amazing response to Anti VEGF recurrence is inevitable. Vision cloud be preserved if the patient is properly managed  (T&E Vs PRN).

For the PCME talk

Prevention and treatment of PCME can be done by careful clinical evaluation and interpretation of ancillary tests. Although the treatment with topical is usually enough, the treatment with periocular steroids can resolve the cystoid macular edema by monitoring IOP. However, persistent or tractional  PCME mandate PPV.

For the RVO talk

Retinal vein occlusions are an important cause of decreased vision.

The diagnosis is clinical. However, imaging studies should be performed to obtain more information about the severity of the disease and decisions on the best treatments.

Macular edema is a common cause of visual decrease. Its treatment should ideally be guided by OCT.

Ultra-wide field retinal images and fluorescein angiography will add more information about the possible ischemia affecting the patient. However, these might not be available everywhere.

Several treatment options exist, from anti-VEGFs to steroids. Anti-VEGFs have proven to be more effective than steroids.

For the CSCR talk

Check a good anamnesis and keep your mind open. My case is a little bit atypical but can confirm that we have to have a wide  view of our patients and use all the imaging possible.
