About this book

Although the treatment of retinal diseases remains one of the most challenging fields in ophthalmology, the standard of knowledge has improved substantially over the past few years. The insight into basic mechanisms of disease has been expanded and novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies have been developed, bridging the gap between laboratory and clinical science. Internationally renowned experts present here a comprehensive review of the newest developments, including:

- Applications of optical coherence tomography

- Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy for fundus autofluorescence imaging

- Current and updated recommendations for photodynamic therapy in neovascular AMD

- Novel approaches including intravitreal injections of antiangiogenic substances

This highly practical and clinically relevant volume will be of great value for all those involved with the treatment of retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and chronic central serous chorioretinopathy.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This … volume is an overview of fundal diseases by eminent authors. It is part of a new series that aims to provide current and comprehensive reviews of recent and noteworthy advances in the eight subspecialties of ophthalmology … . It … covers the some advancing areas in a thorough and accessible way." (Vaegan, Documenta Ophthalmologica, Vol. 113, 2006)

"A major part of it deals with topics around age-related macular degeneration. … There are overall 74 high-quality figures, most of them in colour, and 6 tables. … The chapters are well structured, and the layout of the book makes it reading convenient. The overall size is just right. The book is useful for all ophthalmologists, both for those in private practice and for those working in a clinical setting. … worth reading for a quick update in medical retina." (Michael Ulbig, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 2006)

"The aim of this series is to provide a review of the relevant subspecialty based on the recent and noteworthy advances. … It is well written and has a clear and easily readable style. … The book is also an excellent review text for established specialist in medical retina … . In summary, this is a super little book that deserves its place on the already overcrowded shelves of medical retinal specialists. … no library catalogue is complete without it." (David Squirrell, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 34, 2006)
