This edition of the EyeCarePD newsletter is about vitreomacular adhesion and expanding how we think about the area of attachment. It’s no secret that the vitreous shifts based on its water:collagen ratio throughout life. When we’re young, the vitreous is firmly attached to the retina via adhesion molecules along the vitreoretinal interface. As we age,… Read More
This edition of the EyeCarePD newsletter is about optical intensity and Retinal Artery Occlusions. Let’s talk about Retinal Arterial Occlusion (RAO), a vision-threatening pathology with visual outcomes ranging from 20/25 to no light perception. Even though we can often diagnosis RAO on clinical examination, adjunctive OCT imaging can still be useful. That’s because the OCT… Read More
We’ve created a quick video that answers the question “what is INTERPRET all about”? Check it out!
This edition of the EyeCarePD newsletter is about retinal angiomatous proliferation and how it affects patient care. Want to learn about an interesting variant of Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)? Let’s talk about retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). Unlike choroidal neovascularization (CNV), which starts in the choroid, RAP starts in the retina. The neovessels then proliferate… Read More
This edition of the EyeCarePD newsletter is about timeframes for patient referrals for common macular pathologies. We’ve all seen patients with concerning presentations of macular disease. From blood to fluid, it can be confusing for the referring doctor to know how urgently a patient needs to be seen by a specialist. At EyeCarePD, we’re often… Read More
There just isn’t enough information out there when it comes to OCT terminology for intraretinal fluid—specifically, for the purpose of lesion classification in chorioretinal pathologies.
This edition of the EyeCarePD newsletter introduces new technology for improving the accuracy of OCT interpretation and highlights advances in the treatment of postoperative cystoid macular edema.
Vitreous degeneration can take varying forms and has been classified in various manners in the scientific literature.
We certainly all would agree that not every area of hard exudate warrants intervention.
In this OCT image you will note an epiretinal membrane (arrows). There is also intraretinal fluid best described as diffuse outer retinal thickening (circle).
