This markedly enhanced edition has met the challenge of providing new information that is both intellectually and clinically valuable.

Chapters are devoted to the following: pathophysiology and epidemiology of age related macular degeneration (AMD); clinical features of AMD; imaging techniques; and medical therapy for both non-neovascular AMD and neovascular AMD. Both clinically validated and experimental therapies are well described, including rehabilitation technology (a highly important topic that is often overlooked in the management of patients with AMD).

Key features of this new edition;

•Over 200 clinical photographs and illustrations (many in full colour)
•An in depth review and analysis of the management of dry and wet AMD (medical and surgical therapies)
•Research advancements that have resulted in novel therapies
•Strategies to prevent the progression of non-exudative AMD
•Summary of studies and results from current clinical trials
•A collaboration of world renowned experts in the field- over 75 contributors
