    • Proliferative (PDR)


Non proliferative diabetic retinopathy npdr

Non-proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (NPDR)

  • Pathogenesis

    • Microvascular disease causing capillary damage

    • Leakage of blood constituents into the retina

      • Retinal hemorrhages

      • Retinal edema

      • Lipid exudation

Outpatient procedure

Topical Anesthesia

In PDR, laser should be performed before

vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment develops


Diabetic retinopathy3

Diabetic Retinopathy

  • Early identification of the disease and prompt referral to the ophthalmologist

  • Dilate your patients for examination with ophthalmoscope regularly

  • Prompt treatment reduces risk of visual loss by 50%

  • Patients may be asymptomatic but still have advanced PDR

Hypertensive Retinopathy

  • Management

    • Rule out secondary hypertension

    • Control of hypertension


Vascular retinopathies

Vascular Retinopathies


Retinal vascular occlusions

Retinal Vascular Occlusions

  • Venous occlusion more common than arterial occlusion

  • Pathogenesis

    • Arterial occlusion – embolus

      • Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO)

      • Branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO)

    • Venous occlusion – abnormal blood flow

      • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO)

      • Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO)


Retinal arterial occlusions

Retinal Arterial Occlusions

  • Symptoms

    • Sudden, painless, marked loss of vision

    • Immediate treatment within 24-48 hours may be beneficial in some patients

  • Systemic Associations

    • Cardiovascular disease

    • Carotid artery disease

    • Temporal arteritis / inflammatory arteritis

    • Coagulopathies

Retinal venous occlusions

Retinal Venous Occlusions

  • Symptoms

    • Sudden painless loss of vision

    • Various extent of visual loss

  • Systemic Associations

    • Diabetes Mellitus

    • Hypertension

    • Hematological diseases

    • Vasculitis

Macular diseases1

Macular Diseases

  • Common surgical macular diseases

    • Macular hole

    • Epiretinal membrane

  • Common medical macular diseases

    • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

    • Myopic maculopathy

    • Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC)


Age related macular degeneration amd

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

  • Leading cause of severe vision loss in people > 50 years in the western world

  • Visual loss due to drusens / RPE degeneration or development choroidal neovascularization (CNV)


Age related macular degeneration amd1

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

  • Two forms

    • Dry (non-neovascular) AMD(80% to 90%)

    • Wet (neovascular) AMD(10% to 20%)

  • 90% of vision loss is caused by wet form of AMD


Symptoms of amd early

Symptoms of AMD – Early

Decrease in color and contrast sensitivity


Symptoms of amd intermediate

Symptoms of AMD – Intermediate

Impairment of central visual function


Symptoms of amd intermediate1

Symptoms of AMD – Intermediate

Metamorphopsia,

distortion of central image


Symptoms of amd late

Symptoms of AMD – Late

Central Scotoma

Drusen


Early dry amd

Early Dry AMD

  • Asymptomatic

  • Examination reveals several small drusen or a few medium-sized drusen (63-124m)


Intermediate dry amd

Intermediate Dry AMD

  • Many medium-sized drusen or 1 large drusen (>125m)

  • Vision may be impaired


Advanced dry amd

Advanced Dry AMD

  • More severe visual impairment

  • Presence of drusen with degeneration of RPE

  • Geographic atrophy


Dry amd wet amd formation of new vessels

Diagnosis

Diagnosis

  • Vision function testing

    • Visual acuity

    • Amsler grid

  • Ophthalmolscopy

  • Fluorescein angiography


Early diagnosis

Early Diagnosis

  • Amsler Grid

  • Adequate lighting

  • Wear reading glasses

  • Hold the Amsler grid at normal reading distance (about 30cm)

  • Cover one eye at a time

  • Stare at the center dot

  • Ask the following questions:

  • Are any of the lines wavy, missing, blurry, or discolored?

  • Are any of the boxes different in size or shape from the others?

Management of amd

Management of AMD

  • Treatment for neovascular AMD

    • Laser photocoagulation

    • Submacular surgery

    • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with Verteporfin

    • Anti-angiogenesis therapy (Anti-VEGF)

  • Prevent progression to advanced AMD

    • Antioxidants

    • Quit smoking

  • Low-vision aids


Laser photocoagulation

Laser Photocoagulation

  • Non-selective thermal laser photocoagulation

    • Destroy CNV

    • Irreversible damage to the overlying retina and RPE

    • Side effects of immediate scotoma or drop in central vision

    • CNV persist or recur in 50% of patients

High dose areds supplements

High dose AREDS supplements

  • Beta-carotene

  • Vitamin A

  • Vitamin C

  • Vitamin E

  • Zinc

  • Copper

  • Decrease risk of progression from dry to wet AMD


Smoking and amd

Smoking and AMD

  • Most important risk factors for AMD

  • Smokers have 300% to 400% more risk in developing AMD than non-smokers

  • Even passive smoking increase the risk of AMD by 30% to 40%


Prevention is better than cure

Prevention is better than cure

  • Increasing prevalence of AMD due to aging and western life-style

  • Recognize and correct risk factors

    • Quit smoking

    • Healthy diet

  • Self screening testin high-risk group

  • Regular dilated fundus examination to evaluate AMD findings

    Early diagnosis is the key to save vision
