With the current rapid development of ophthalmic sciences, it is difficult for ophthalmologists to remain fully up to date with all areas of clinical specialty. The second edition of this atlas describes the latest advances in clinical ophthalmology. Each chapter deals with a separate part of the eye, discussing different diseases and disorders that may be encountered by ophthalmologists. Each condition is accompanied by concise descriptions of major and minor signs, as well as detailed photographs illustrating the disease. This comprehensive new edition features 3750 full colour images and illustrations, including more than 600 additional photographs. Images from the first edition have been replaced with better quality photographs taken with the Haag-Streit BX-900 Photo-Slit Lamp and the Zeiss FF 450 Plus Fundus camera.
This book provides a concise overview over the pathology of retinal angiogenic diseases and explains why anti-angiogenic therapy is effective in so many patients. The reader is guided through the various clinical indications for anti-angiogenic therapy and made aware of its merits as well as current challenges and limitations. It is explained how, since its introduction for the treatment of exudative age-related macular degeneration in 2006, anti-angiogenic therapy has revolutionized the way in which we treat a range of ocular diseases. All of the authors are established experts in their respective fields who share their extensive knowledge and clinical experience with the reader. This book is both a valuable introduction to anti-angiogenic therapy in ophthalmology and a day-to-day companion for all ophthalmologists seeing patients with some of the most prevalent retinal diseases.
