Disease Insights

Understanding and defining the characteristics of retinal diseases are crucial steps to ensuring optimal diagnosis and treatment. Clinical decisions should be guided by disease characteristics and should aim to achieve an optimal outcome. In this resource zone, we provide guidance on the characteristics and definitions of various retinal diseases:

  • The definition and pathogenesis of pachychoroid in nAMD/PCV
  • Characterization of AMD subtypes to optimize treatment outcomes

Coming soon: The definition and pathogenesis of pachychoroid in nAMD/PCV

Defining pachychoroid and its pathogenesis is important in the diagnosis and management of associated conditions. The Vision Academy aims to provide an expert consensus on the definition of pachychoroid and increase understanding of the condition’s pathogenesis in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD)/polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV).

Coming soon: Characterization of AMD subtypes to optimize treatment outcomes

Defining and differentiating AMD subtypes is important in the management of AMD and ensuring optimal response to treatment. The Vision Academy aims to provide an expert consensus on the definition and characteristics of various AMD subtypes and is developing guidelines on treatments tailored to features of the disease.
