Webinar: Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Insights Into the Leading Cause of Blindness

Register to watch on demand (55 minutes)

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in the elderly population. Because patients may be asymptomatic until acute vision loss occurs, early detection and reducing the risk of progression are essential to preserve vision and quality of life.

Join a free webinar to hear Theodore Leng, MD, MS, describe this multifactorial disease as well as strategies for early detection, current treatment options and how new data may change the way we care for our patients with AMD.

This webinar is designed for all healthcare professionals.
