Eye Care Live Webinar | June 14, 2022, 7 pm (CEST) / 1 pm (EDT)

Enhance Your Daily Patient Management with Wide Field OCT

In this webinar, we will take a closer look at specific pathologies and how OCT and OCTA can help you in your patient management. We will go more in depth into peripheral pathologies and pachychoroid diseases. Also, we will discuss the long-term effects in the evolution of retinal and microvascular alterations in patients with Long COVID.

This webinar occurs now in the past. The recording is available.
Program

  • Live Q&A

Why should you attend ?
  • Use of OCTA to analyze the effect of COVID-19 on the retinal microvasculature
  • Assess the Vitreoretinal Interface (VRI) to establish the Status of Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD)
  • Wide field choroidal thickness map may be an additional parameter to evaluate therapeutic interventions in patients with pachychoroid diseases.

EXTENSIVE INFORMATION ON SPEAKERS AND PRESENTATIONS

sou
Speaker: Prof. Tariq Aslam, MD, PhD MA (Oxon), DM (Oxon), FRCSEd (Ophth),
Consultant Ophthalmologist
Manchester Royal Eye Hospital
Manchester, UK

Prof. Tariq Aslam began his medical training at Oxford University and completed his medical retina fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital. His first research doctorate from Oxford University involved clinical trials in ophthalmic surgery and a further PhD from Heriot-Watt University investigated technology applications in ophthalmology. Both doctorate theses utilized his skills in computer programming and his most recent led to a prize for the best PhD across all University disciplines. His current research explores many clinical interests in the retina including psychological aspects and the potential for computerized and technological enhancement of patient care including novel device development. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, predominantly as lead author, a number of patents and is an investigator on multiple commercial as well as investigator lead studies. His research has led to a spin-out medical technology company with awards for social impact, which is his ultimate research goal.

Presentation title: OCT-A as a Window to COVID-19 - the Potential – Part II
Multiple studies have found retinal changes in the acute phase of COVID-19. This study was carried out to evaluate the long-term evolution of retinal and microvascular alterations in patients post- COVID-19. Patients diagnosed with long COVID and patients post-hospitalization for COVID pneumonitis were compared with a control cohort. Patients were imaged 6-24 months post-infection.
