Founding Director, VMR Institute – Vitreous – Macula – Retina
There are various causes for exudative maculopathy that can be grouped anatomically as those that arise from changes in front of the macula, known as vitreo-maculopathies, changes within the macula, typically retino-vascular disorders, most commonly diabetic macular edema but also retinal vein occlusions and perifoveal telangiectasia, and changes behind the macula most often age-related macular degeneration but also central serous chorioretinopathy.
Surgery is typically performed for vitreo-maculopathies, but pharmacologic vitreolysis is indicated to treat certain conditions and avoid surgery. Laser therapy, the previous mainstay of therapy for intraretinal exudative maculopathies, has been effectively replaced by intravitreal anti-VEGF injections.
This lecture will review the various maculopathies, their clinical presentation, and therapeutic management.
