Imaging Techniques and Emerging Therapies for Geographic Atrophy

Presented by Dr. Carolyn Majcher 

Optometric physicians often serve as the primary point of detection of geographic atrophy (GA) which is the defining lesion of atrophic AMD. Multimodal imaging is essential to detect, monitor, and quantify GA lesions. This course will explore early high-risk OCT biomarkers that predict or predispose to future GA development as well as OCT and fundus autofluorescence features that predict expansion. New complement inhibitor therapies will be introduced.

2024 Regional Meetings

The AAO and ACO are again headed out to meet with members at in-person Regional Meetings across Alberta.

They will be seeking your feedback on strategic plans, looking for your insights on issues important to you, updating you on the work that has taken place over the past year, and taking a look at the emerging priorities like scope expansion and Alberta Health billings.

This is a great opportunity to provide your thoughts and comments and, at the same time, catch up with colleagues over dinner.
