Despite recent advances in medicine, macular disease remains a common cause of severe visual impairment, particularly in elderly people. The aim of this book is to provide a practical and clinically orientated approach to the diagnosis and management of macular disorders. It comprehensively covers diseases that primarily affect the macula, such as age-related macular degeneration, together with secondary diseases that might have an indirect effect on macular function, such as vascular and inflammatory disorders.
Liberally illustrated with over 400 full color photographs, and supplemented throughout with angiograms and case studies, the book is carefully organized so that the most important conditions are described towards the beginning of each chapter, followed by the less common conditions towards the end.
This highly accessible and practical book will be an invaluable guide to the general ophthalmologist, optometrist, and particularly to trainees.
