Diabetic Retinopathy: The Essentials focuses on the diagnosis and management of diabetic retinopathy from the point of view of the retinal specialist.

Written for general ophthalmologists and optometrists as well as family practitioners, diabetologists, and internists who encounter diabetic patients on a daily basis, this book begins with the epidemiology, anatomy, and pathophysiology of diabetic retinopathy. It then covers important topics such as classification issues, diagnostic testing, examination techniques, new treatment modalities, patient management, indications for vitrectomy, pregnancy concerns, and informed consent.

Coverage includes both general medical issues in diabetes and specifically ophthalmologic concerns. Features include more than 200 full-color photographs, case studies, and algorithms for patient management.
