At the conference, AMDAI will unveil findings from paper "Increasing Understanding of Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration as a Chronic Disease that Has Best Outcomes from Regular Clinical Assessments and Standardized Therapies." The final report will highlight concrete issues surrounding AMD, an overview of the current treatment landscape, and the impact of the disease globally.  The meeting program also includes presentations on current macular disease research, low vision technology, psycho-social aspects affecting patients and treatment safety.
