Advances in Retinal Therapeutics

Description

Recent years have seen monumental advances in the treatment of a multitude of retinal diseases through the development of several new medications (anti-VEGF agents, dexamethasone implants, ocriplasmin injection, and new nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents), the use of existing medications for new indications, and through the evolution of vitreoretinal surgical instrumentation, adjuvants, and techniques.

We invite clinical investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that discuss early results of new drugs for retinal disease, that expand or better define the use of existing drugs for the treatment of retinal disease, or that demonstrate or report on the use of novel or recently developed surgical techniques or instruments. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Treatment of central serous chorioretinopathy
  • Treatment of diabetic retinopathy (diabetic macular edema, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and tractional retinal detachment)
  • Treatment of age-related macular degeneration
  • Treatment of retinal detachment and/or proliferative vitreoretinopathy
  • Treatment of endophthalmitis
  • Treatment of cystoid macular edema
  • Treatment of macular hole, vitreomacular traction, and epiretinal membrane
  • Treatment of retinal vascular disease and its complications
  • Treatment of retinopathy of prematurity
  • Treatment of macular dystrophy, including Stargardt disease
  • Treatment of retinitis pigmentosa
