Managing the Vitreomacular Interface

The advent of OCT has allowed for a better understanding and insight into vitreomacular interface disorders many of which can be difficult to detect with fundus examination alone. This course will cover the classification and management of VMI disorders including vitreomacular adhesion, vitreomacular traction and macular holes. Additionally, the impact of VMA and VMT on other macular disease will be discussed based on current literature.

Objectives
1) Review the International Vitreomacular Traction Study Group’s classification of vitreomacular adhesion, vitreomacular traction and macular holes.
2) Discuss the treatment options for vitreomacular traction, macular holes and epiretinal membrane.
3) Review the impact of vitreomacular adhesion and traction on other macular diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema.
4) Review complications of anomalous posterior vitreous detachment.
