Webinar Credits: 1

As newer therapies enter the market, treatment options and dosing strategies can be impacted by the cost of treatment, which continues to be a major factor in treatment planning. Clinicians need to consider multiple treatment options in order to properly gauge the right treatment plan for any given patient’s needs. Ophthalmologists are also only one part of the treatment paradigm for patients with diabetes; as previously described these patients tend to have other manifestations of the systemic disorder and treatment is multifactorial.
