About this book

Pathological Myopia is a major cause of severe vision loss worldwide. The mechanisms for vision loss include cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and above all, degeneration of the macula within the posterior staphyloma. Pathological Myopia is one of the only current books to specifically address this disease and discusses recent developments in imaging technologies and various approaches to treatments, such as laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, pharmaco-therapeutic injections in the vitreous, and surgery.

Complete with high-quality color images, this book is written and edited by leaders in the field and is geared towards ophthalmologists, including residents and fellows in training, glaucoma and cataract specialists, and vitreoretinal macula experts.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book presents the definition, epidemiology, and genetics of myopia and an analysis of the human eye shape and pathologies and possible therapies for pathological myopia. … Intended for ophthalmologists, the book is written in such a way that both comprehensive ophthalmologists and retina specialists may find it useful. … This is a wonderful fount of information on myopia and pathological myopia. It is likely the most complete book on the topic currently available.” (Elizabeth C. Chiang, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
