About this book

Introduction

The advent of intravitreal treatment with anti-vascular endothelium growth factor (anti-VEGF) antibodies and steroids has revolutionized the management of diabetic retinopathy. This timely 2nd edition delves into therapies involving anti-VEGF, and addresses the complexities inherent in the practical application of these clinical trials, from issues of patient compliance, to consideration of the patient’s overall health status.

 Clinical Strategies in the Management of Diabetic Retinopathy: Step-by-Step Guide for Ophthalmologists, 2nd Edition covers all the stages of diabetic retinopathy, including clinical manifestations, imaging, and treatment, from the early signs to more advanced levels of severity. Richly-illustrated, this clinical resource is designed to present multiple practical and useful suggestions for the management of each stage of diabetic retinopathy, using algorithms, tables, and summaries. Images of sample cases exemplify the effects of different therapies, including benefits and side effects. Novel perspectives in both imaging and treatment are provided to clearly outline current research in the field, with a look to future directions. Written and edited by well-respected leaders in the field, Clinical Strategies in the Management of Diabetic Retinopathy, 2nd edition is an ideal resource for ophthalmologists aiming to provide optimal clinical management for this sight-threatening disease.
