Patients with changes to the retinal vasculature are frequently encountered in general optometric practice. Correct identification and appropriate management of these changes can afford patients significant benefits to not only their ocular health, but may also play a role in managing their systemic health.
This video lecture will take a case-based approach to some of the retinal vasculature presentations more commonly seen in clinical practice and provide insight into the underlying systemic processes associated with these cases.
- Identify abnormal retinal vascular signs, understand the basic pathophysiology behind these signs and recognise systemic conditions associated with these presentations
- Discuss appropriate management strategies, including the appropriateness of systemic investigations and/or therapeutic optometric intervention
- Discuss the potential role of multimodal imaging
