Ophthalmic Education Evening, Tuesday 26 April 2016

Live patient workshop

You are invited to attend a small group interactive live patient workshop, hosted by Dr Andrew Kaines and Dr Jay Yohendran. You will witness an intravitreal injection being performed. You will also assess a patient who had cataract surgery, combined with ECP, a few hours before the workshop. If you have patients who undergo intravitreal therapy, but you have not seen an injection being performed yourself, you will gain a great deal from this workshop. If you are not confident assessing for anterior chamber cells, this would be a good opportunity to hone your skills.

 

Macular Degeneration with Andrew Kaines.

Discussion will include:

• The benefits of wide-field angiography
• How to perform the injection painlessly
• How to minimise endophthalmitis risk

Case studies: Adult Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy (AVMD)

Classic egg yolk appearance of AVMD. This looks like a single round central drusen in each eye. Best’s disease looks similar, however the egg yolk appearance degenerates in patients during teenage years, whereas in AVMD it degenerates around the age of 60-70. Vision is also usually about 6/9 in AVMD, compared with 6/60 in Best’s disease.
