The optometrist is often faced with clinical challenges concerning macular disorders, both in terms of proper diagnosis as well as recommendations and treatment for the patient. Fortunately, current techniques such as scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and photodynamic therapy have helped assist with solving these challenges. Yet aside from recent technological advances, much of the diagnosis of macular conditions still relies on a thorough case history and careful examination by the practitioner.
