This webinar will focus on relevant and timely discussions about treating patients with diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in additional challenges for both patients and retina specialists. The esteemed panel, chaired by Sophie Bakri, MD, will examine clinical trial data and share their expertise on treatment options during these unprecedented times, methods for implementing treatment, and the role of inflammation, among other topics.
This webinar presents the same didactic material as part two, plus new case studies and a recorded question-and-answer session.
Supported by an independent educational grant from Allergan.
