Over time, diabetes can cause damage to your eyes that can lead to poor vision or even blindness. But you can take steps to prevent diabetic eye disease, or keep it from getting worse, by taking care of your diabetes.

In this short course, you will get a comprehensive overview of current concepts in pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetic retinopathy. The lessons are written by experts who discuss advances in the understanding of pathophysiology, inflammatory and immunological factors and emerging concepts, clinical aspects, diagnostic management, and treatment strategies.

In this self-study course, you will learn about:

  • Pathophysiology of Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Role of Inflammation in Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Optical Coherence Tomography in Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Current Management of Diabetic Macular Edema
  • Angiopoietins as Targets for Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment
  • and more…

This study material will a useful resource for students and medical practitioners pursuing ophthalmology.
