Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Not available

The value of Age-Related Macular Degeneration has stood the test of time, but progress in both basic and clinical ophthalmology has been relentless, mandating the need for an updated book. This second edition focuses on the pathophysiology and the epidemiology of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the clinical features and management of dry and wet AMD, imaging techniques, and medical therapy for both non-neovascular AMD and neovascular AMD. It describes both clinically validated and experimental therapies as well as rehabilitation technology, and presents strategies to prevent the progression of non-exudative AMD. Results from current clinical trials are also included.

New chapters in this edition cover:

Genetics and treatment

Oxidative stress and its relation to the pathophysiology of AMD and CNV (choroidal neovascularization—a common symptom of wet AMD)

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

Microperimetry and psychophysical testing and ways to track geographic atrophy progression

Non-VEGF pathways

Retinal stem cells
