  • Details the current clinical understanding of DR and scientific advances
  • Features the work of internationally recognized leaders in the diabetic retinopathy field
  • Discusses new and recent concepts relating to management and treatment of DR

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common microvascular complication of diabetes. It remains a major cause of new-onset visual loss in the United States and other industrialized nations. In Diabetic Retinopathy, Elia Duh and a panel of internationally recognized experts comprehensively assess the current state of knowledge regarding the clinical management of DR as well as its underlying mechanisms. The authors outline the current understanding of diabetic retinopathy from the perspective of clinical practice, while reviewing the multi-factorial pathogenesis and pathophysiology of DR from the standpoint of biomedical research. Also included is a discussion of emerging concepts relating to the management and treatment of DR. Informative and highly-practical, Diabetic Retinopathy provides ophthalmologists, diabetologists, endocrinologists, and internists with a highly readable guide not only to understanding diabetic retinopathy, but also to its optimal clinical management.
