Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration


This continuing education lecture will review the various pre-retinal, intraretinal, and sub-retinal causes of exudative maculopathies with an emphasis on early detection and modern treatment paradigms.

Exudative Maculopathies are the leading causes of blindness in the Western World. In the elderly, exudative age-related macular degeneration is the number one cause of blindness.

In this lecture, Dr. Sebag will touch on Exudative Maculopathies; the various causes for exudative maculopathy that can be grouped anatomically as those that arise from changes in front of the macula, known as vitreo-maculopathies, changes within the macula, typically retino-vascular disorders, most commonly diabetic macular edema but also retinal vein occlusions and perifoveal telangiectasia, and changes behind the macula most often age-related macular degeneration but also central serous chorioretinopathy.
