EMG Optometry Seminar, Part 2

The topic of the Spring Optometry Seminar was retinal issues and emergencies. Dr. Scott Steidl’s presentation was a handful of case studies of patients with different diagnoses that he chose out of his schedule. He did an overview of 10 different patients with different diseases of the retina…uveitis, AMD, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, CRVO, and BRVO, among other things. He discussed the specific disease, how he treated that disease and what he was expecting to do further to treat the disease if necessary; how patients handled the treatment, and what the prognosis was for that particular disease in that individual. He discussed the different methods of treatment for particular issues, including surgery and injections with anti VEGF medications.

At the end of the seminar, there was a question and answer section where the doctors could ask questions about the material presented.
