Overview
Intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy has revolutionized the treatment of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). However, it has also introduced new problems—notably patients’ treatment burden of undergoing frequent intraocular injections. Continuing research on the use of various treatment regimens and on emerging anti-VEGF medications suggests opportunities to optimize nAMD therapy and better balance reductions in treatment frequency with achieving and maintaining improvements in visual acuity. In this educational activity, expert faculty will examine the burden of current anti-VEGF treatment protocols as well as the latest clinical trial data on investigational anti-VEGF agents and their mechanisms of action.

Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:


Review results from long-term extension trials using pro re nata (PRN), fixed-interval, and treat-and-extend anti-VEGF dosing to have a better understanding how dosing regimen affects visual outcomes in patients with nAMD. 




Assess new agents and delivery techniques that require less frequent administration to achieve effective therapy in patients with nAMD.


Examine the unique mechanisms of action for emerging treatments for nAMD and their ability to lessen the burden of treatment.




Target Audience
The intended audience for this activity is retina specialists and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with nAMD.
