RPE Detachment in AMD: Injection Index May Predict Long Term Visual Outcomes

RPE Detachment in AMD: Injection Index May Predict Long Term Visual Outcomes

Dr. Gui had the distinct privilege of virtually presenting his research about wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) on September 21-22, 2020 at the annual Retina Society meeting. Dr. Gui and colleagues found that in their study population, an increased injection frequency of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) was associated with better vision over five years.

Watch Dr. Gui’s full presentation here.

Dr. Gui has obtained training in vitreo-retinal diseases and surgery from the prestigious Stein Eye Institute at UCLA in Los Angeles and currently treats patients at the VMR Institute, a leading facility for treatment of disorders of Vitreous, Macula, and Retina, in Orange County.

Retina Society

The Retina Society was founded in 1968 exclusively for educational and scientific purposes concerning the diagnosis, care and treatment of diseases and injuries to the retina. The Retina Society began as an outgrowth of alumni meetings of Retina Associates, a retina practice founded in Boston in 1951 by Charles L. Schepens. Dr. Schepens is credited with establishing retina surgery as a sub-specialty.  www.retinasociety.org Accessed October 2020.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

In response to the threat posed by the C-virus pandemic throughout the world, the VMR Institute for Vitreous Macula Retina has instituted protective measures that are in compliance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the California Medical Association (CMA). These specifically include telephone screening for recent travel and relevant symptoms, measuring patient temperature upon presentation to the office, decreasing patient visit volumes by only caring for urgent or emergent cases, and spreading out appointments to implement ‘social distancing’. All staff are equipped with PPE and all equipment and patient contact areas are cleaned between patients.

Thank you for your patience and forbearance during these trying times. Together, we shall prevail.
