This podcast series from the Academy's Committee on Aging features leading experts who discuss clinical experiences and the differences in caring for older adults.
In today's podcast, Dr. Neil Bressler leads a discussion on the challenges of follow-up care for patients who require regular anti-VEFG therapy for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic macular edema (DME). This older population often has ambulatory and other health issues that prevent them from being treated or monitored on a monthly basis. The participants discuss care regimens and other ideas to provide the best possible outcomes in these situations.
