Community Practice Connections™: Optimizing Management of Uveitic Macular Edema With Potential Treatments on the Horizon

Release Date: December 21, 2021
Expiration Date: December 21, 2022


Activity Overview

Macular edema is the leading cause of visual impairment in noninfectious uveitis, but the benefits of corticosteroid treatment for uveitic macular edema (UME) must be balanced with the risks, such as glaucoma and cataracts. New drug delivery systems have been developed in recent years to help decrease these associated risks, and systemic immunomodulators have also been shown to be effective for UME.
 
This Community Practice Connections™ program program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from the live Medical Crossfire™: Optimizing Management of Uveitic Macular Edema With Potential Treatments on the Horizon, presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting 2021. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with UME, putting recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.
