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.
