Barriers for timely detection of wet AMD and what we can do to overcome them

  • Mohammad Rafieetary, OD, FAAO

Early detection of wet AMD is critical for maintaining a patient’s functional vision (≥20/40). While patients with poor visual acuity at diagnosis regain more letters with anti-VEGF treatment, the majority will not return to good functional vision1. Detect wet AMD earlier, help your patients maintain their functional vision, and strengthen your referral relationships with qualified wet AMD patients. Learn more about effective solutions to detect wet AMD earlier in this webinar by Mohammad Rafieetary, OD.
