Diabetic Macular Oedema
An Introduction to Diabetic Macular Oedema
The introduction of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapies changed the standard of care for patients with diabetic macular oedema, however, the need for longer-acting medications and novel therapeutic targets still exist. Looking to the future, new treatments targeting multiple pathways are currently under investigation.

Steroids for Diabetic Macular Oedema – A Brief Review of the Data
European Ophthalmic Review. 2019:13(1):44-8 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EO R.2019.13.1.44
Diabetic macular oedema (DMO) is a complication of diabetic retinopathy and is a leading cause of blindness in working-age adults in developed nations. In 2015, there were an estimated 415 million people with diabetes worldwide.1 This number is predicted to rise to 642 million by 2040.1 The prevalence of DMO is estimated to be up […]
Christina Vidinova, SOE 2019 – Meeting highlights
Christina Vidinova talks about her highlights from SOE 2019, including photoablation therapy, which has been under research for 20 years and imaging technologies in DME that can predict risk factors. Sessions for young ophthalmologists are important and gives them the opportunity to learn new skills. Filmed in partnership with the European Society of Ophthalmology (SOE) […]
Jean-François Korobelnik, AAO 2018 – Aflibercept and the APOLLON Study
Professor Jean-François Korobelnik joins us to discuss aflibercept and its effectiveness as a widely used and well-tolerated anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor. He also briefly describes the APOLLON study, looking at the real-life treatment, monitoring and outcomes of treatment in patients with diabetic macular edema in routine clinical practice.

José Cunha-Vaz, WOC 2018 – Challenges and Recent Developments in DME
At WOC 2018, José Cunha-Vaz (University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal) discussed his experience with treating patients with DME. The most significant developments in the area of DME are OCT imaging and the availability of anti-VEGF agents, which completely revolutionised treatment. The major issue is individualising treatment to each patient, as response varies greatly between different […]
