The specialty of medical retina remains one of the most challenging fields in ophthalmology. Insight into the basic mechanisms of disease has expanded and novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies have been developed bridging the gap between laboratory and clinical science.

Written by world-renowned experts, this authoritative work on medical retina is both comprehensive and practical. It encompasses the application of confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy including fundus autofluorescence imaging as well as the mapping of central visual function by microperimetry. It also covers anti-VEGF therapy that has revolutionized the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration.

The next big challenge, the management and treatment targets for dry AMD is also presented as well as the practical relevance for the management of diabetic macular edema and retinal vein occlusions.
