vitreomacular traction

Case studies: Vitreomacular Traction

This is a photo of a 65 year old male I saw last week. This is vitreomacular traction however, he presents with excellent vision – 6/4.5 bilaterally.

At this stage he doesn’t require treatment, but he has been advised to return in a few months. Meanwhile, he will self-monitor with an Amsler Grid and knows to come back if his vision changes or he notes any distortion. I’ll keep you updated on his progress.

macula degeneration injection

Our workshop: Intravitreal Injections

Last night, we had a small group workshop where 14 optometrists witnessed myself and Andrew perform an intravitreal injection on patients. There was also a Q & A session with the patients, where the optometrists got a perspective from the patients on their experience going through the treatment process for wet AMD. We wanted to cap the numbers at 12, to ensure that it was interactive and personal. We got a very positive feedback. Thank you all for joining us.

Case studies: Emphysema


EmphysemaThis is a photo of a lady I saw yesterday. She is 82 years old and suffers from emphysema. Despite this, she still smokes. She has had cataract surgery in the past and presented with a four day history of decreased left vision.

On examination, her visual acuity was Right 6/12 and left Count fingers only.

As you can see, she has atrophic changes at her right macula and a huge left macular hemorrhage. I made a diagnosis of wet AMS and injected Lucentis intravitrally.

I asked her to use Macuvision tablets and stressed that she must stop smoking. Let’s see how she goes, I’ll keep you updated.
