About this book

The book discusses all aspects of choroidal neovascularization (CNV), including the basics, clinical conditions associated with CNV, clinical trials related to CNV, future directions and rehabilitation. The first section covers the pathogenesis, proposed mechanisms, disease models, histopathology and electronmicroscopy. The next section explores CNV secondary to various clinical conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), myopia, and less common conditions like choroidal osteoma. The book also covers clinical features, imaging characteristics, and treatment approaches, as well as clinical trials in CNV conditions with recent updates. Lastly, it features chapters on stem cell therapy, gene therapy, new molecules, and lasers, as well as a section on rehabilitation, which addresses home monitoring and low vision aids.

This book is intended for retina specialists, retina fellows and general ophthalmologists.
