About this book


Age-related Macular Degeneration Diagnosis and Treatment provides —for the retina specialist, general eye care professional, vision scientist, and those training in these areas—an update on the current understanding of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), pathophysiology, the use of diagnostic tests, and the management of both non-neovascular and neovascular AMD. It also looks into the future with potential treatment options that are now under investigation in clinical trials, and finally, covers the medical economics and societal impact of this major public health issue. Special features of this book:


·         Written by leading authorities in the field

·         Concise yet highly illustrated and practical text that guides the clinician through diagnosis and treatment of the leading cause of blindness in older Americans

·         Covers diagnosis and treatment options for both neovascular and non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), as well as less common forms of non-age-related macular degeneration

From the reviews:

“This book … can be viewed as an update on all one wants to know about age-related macular degeneration (AMD), what is new and what keeps AMD researchers’ and clinicians’ minds ‘racing’; whether it is genetics, modifiable risk factors, therapy and management, as well as future directions in treatment and its limitations. … this book will definitely have its place in clinical ophthalmic practice and it will be a very useful source for academic reference and teaching purposes.” (Beatrix Feigl, Clinical and Experimental Optometry, Vol. 95, July, 2012)
