This small group educational experience is designed for retina specialists and eye care professionals involved in the medical management of patients with retina disorders. The experience includes CME-accredited self-study modules, live group discussions, and a collaborate group task. All group members are encouraged to engage with other members of the group to share issues, concerns, and best practices.
Key goals of the curriculum are:
Explain the differences in short-term and long-term outcomes with current neovascular AMD treatment options in clinical practice as compared to clinical trial outcomes
Describe the relationship between drugs, treatment frequency, visual, and anatomic outcomes
Develop best practices and recommendations to ensure optimal treatment outcomes for patients
Describe the existing barriers to treatment and ways to overcome them
Identify the newer compounds in development that may reduce treatment burden while maintaining efficacy
This assessment provides you with the opportunity to test your current knowledge and skills related to AMD treatment.
This activity focuses on the recent pivotal trials and reviews the most effective AMD treatment options.
This activity highlights the significance of retinal fluid, the location of fluid as seen in various imaging modalities, as well as how it can persist despite regular treatment.
This program will focus on the basics of pigment epithelial detachment and treatment options as well as the latest in available neovascular age-related macular degeneration therapies and select investigative agents in the pipeline nearing FDA approval.

This Group Discussion will include a brief review of responses to the self-study modules, particularly areas of greatest challenge. Group members will then be encouraged to raise questions and discuss challenges they are facing with the group.
This Group Discussion will focus on your responses and comments on the Group Task, particularly on areas in which there were divergent management approaches.
Each group member will be assigned to respond to one or more questions related to the management of an AMD case. All group members are encouraged to comment on the other submissions based on their own opinions and experience.
