The study also suggests that patient-worn face masks do little to reduce the risk.
The study quantifies differences between the instrument and a dual blade speculum.
Researchers identified changes on OCT imaging associated with disease progression.
The investigation found no correlations between the blue light-filtering devices and wet AMD.

Patients being treated with brolucizumab may require additional monitoring.
Researchers report on early experiences of European patients who switched to brolucizumab therapy after undergoing other anti-VEGF injections.
Researchers support use of anti-VEGF therapy in eyes that have inferior posterior staphyloma with choroidal neovascularization.

Evidence of recurrent nAMD was seen in more than half of the study’s participants.
Wet AMD patients with hypertension were more likely to receive anti-VEGF drug intravitreal injections than those without hypertension, the study shows.
The course provides co-manageing optometrists a review the pathophysiology, imaging technqiues, and treatment strategies of retinal disease
