Diabetic retinopathy: management and developments

Tuesday, 18 December 2018. 7.30 - 8.45 pm

Dr Narme Deva, a Consultant Ophthalmologist discusses how the management of diabetic maculopathy and retinopathy has changed dramatically in the last 5 years and how we are now able to achieve significantly better outcomes with the ability to improve vision rather than just attempt to preserve it. However, as a consequence there is a huge treatment burden on our health system that we have to navigate.
Narme will discuss:

  • Classification and treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Recent advances in management of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Recent advances in ocular imaging.
  • The role of the GP in the management of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Screening for diabetic retinopathy in NZ.
  • What the future holds.

Throughout this live online event, you will have the opportunity to type questions to Narme via the onscreen text system. Please note that the webinar may run slightly over time so as many of your questions as possible can be answered.
