A Trip to China
On a trip to China in 2008, NEI Director Dr. Paul A. Sieving (l) met with Dr. Kanxing Zhao (r), director of the Tianjin Eye Hospital. While other health care professionals observed, Dr. Sieving examined a 60-year-old man whose vision had been deteriorating. Their discussions resulted in a diagnosis of choroidal neovascular age-related macular degeneration, which causes loss of vision from the growth of new blood vessels in the eye. The man underwent imaging tests and was later evaluated for treatment.
