ESVO Webinar: Suprachoroidal drug delivery

“Suprachoroidal drug delivery – indications, pharmacology, and technique

The suprachoroidal space (SCS) is a space that is located between the choroid and sclera and thus surrounds the entire ocular posterior segment. Use of the SCS as a potential site for ocular drug delivery is advantageous because this route avoids substantial drug barriers such as the tear film, surface epithelium, conjunctival lymphatics, and the sclera.

This time we will talk to BRIAN C. GILGER, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVO, Dipl. ABT

Looking forward to “seeing” all of you on August, 23 2022 at 21 CET

About this event:

Dear colleagues, dear friends of ophthalmology,

ESVO is happy to announce new webinar issue: CED corneal endothelia dystrophy in dogs

With disease progression, it can result in corneal edema, bullous keratopathy, ulcerative keratitis, and increased risk of corneal infection, which severely compromises vision and comfort in affected patients. Boston Terriers, chihuahuas, dachshunds, German shorthaired pointers and German wirehaired pointers are predisposed.

This time we will talk to Sara Thomnasy, DVM, PHD, DACVO
