Contemporary Diabetic Retinopathy Care Utilizing OCT


The medical and surgical management of diabetic retinopathy is rapidly evolving, with a trend towards earlier treatment of diabetic retinopathy and prevention of potentially vision threatening complications. The more recent advent of anti-VEGF therapy has led to an explosion of high-quality research, the real- world clinical applications of which are not always easy to interpret and apply. Concurrently, OCT technology is ever advancing, particularly with the commercial release of OCT angiography. The discussion of diabetic retinopathy management will be divided into three main sections non- proliferative diabetic retinopathy, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic macular edema. For each of these sections a case-based format will be used to discuss the standard of care management, and briefly review the relevant literature. Emphasis will be placed on the clinical applications of OCT as well as the optometrists role in diabetic retinopathy management, including when to refer and what treatments will likely be employed.
