This course will provide an overview of the pachychoroid disease spectrum. After conceptually introducing the pachychoroid disease spectrum, the majority of the discussion will focus on central serous chorioretinopathy, pachychoroid pigment epitheliopathy, and pachychoroid neovascularization. A brief review of rarer entities within the pachychoroid spectrum, such as aneurysmal pachychoroid neovascularization, focal choroidal excavation, and peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome will also be included. Diagnosis and management protocols from the optometrist's clinical stand point will be discussed.
