Early detection of geographic atrophy (GA) and timely referral may help maintain the quality of vision patients deserve for longer.1

Iveric Bio has developed a two-page PDF that identifies key factors in identifying GA, considerations for referral and how to manage patient discussions and education.

This guide discusses the retinal imaging technologies commonly used and how optical coherence tomography, fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and color fundus photography (CFP) are all useful in identification, assessing and monitoring GA.

The guide notes that some patient complaints might suggest the feed for functional visual assessments beyond refractive error. And it identifies lesion characteristics association with faster progression rates.
