Genetic Testing in AMD
Genetic testing in AMD is very controversial, especially as it relates to a potential positive or negative effect of high dose zinc supplementation. This course covers genetic testing in patients with AMD, and the research that has gotten us to this point. It discusses how genetic testing can be utilized in the office when caring for patients with AMD. In addition, OCT findings that lead to an increased risk of AMD progression are also covered.
