About this book

Introduction

Age-related macular degeneration has become the most common cause of blindness. With population ageing AMD will become an ever more prevalent cause of visual loss. Here, an expert panel of experienced clinicians and eminent basic scientists provide an authoritative review on the pathogenesis, epidemiology and risk factors, diagnostic methods, imaging modalities and treatment strategies for age-related macular degeneration. Many excellent photographs and diagrams add to a clear understanding.
