Dr. Wykoff to Host Virtual Diabetic Retinopathy CE Webinar
According to the CDC, diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness in working-age adults in the United States. It’s estimated that, by 2050, approximately 14.6 million diabetics will develop the disease. Taken to its most advanced stages, diabetic retinopathy can lead to total blindness. However, vision loss can often be prevented through early detection and proper management of blood sugar levels.
For physicians to help their patients with diabetic retinopathy prevent total vision loss, it’s crucial that they take a collaborative approach that bears in mind the importance of early detection and treatment. In an upcoming continuing education webinar provided by Evolve Medical Education, eye doctors will have an opportunity to learn more about this approach.
Taking place on Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 at 7:30 PM CST, “The Changing Approach to Diabetic Retinopathy: Comanaging with the Retina Specialist” webinar will be co-hosted by Retina Consultants of Houston’s very own Dr. Charles C. Wykoff along with Dr. Rebecca Miller of Slade & Baker Vision in Houston, TX. Together, they will discuss the importance of collaborative care, diabetic eye exams, and early treatment of retinal diseases. The webinar will also touch on ocular surgery and the additional care that it requires.
Dr. Wykoff is an award-winning board-certified Medical and Surgical Retina Specialist as well as the Director of Research at Retina Consultants of Houston. He is known for his extensive experience in researching and treating various vitreoretinal conditions, including diabetic retinopathy. Join him and Dr. Miller for what is sure to be an engaging overview of how members of the eye care community can come together and improve how diabetic retinopathy is treated and managed.
