Written by the foremost authorities from around the world, this full-color text describes and thoroughly illustrates state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities for macular disorders. Coverage begins with contemporary techniques for evaluation of the macula, including optical coherence tomography, microperimetry, and the multifocal electroretinogram. Chapters on outpatient and medical therapies cover laser treatment, intravitreal triamcinolone, and use of photodynamic therapy, transpupillary thermotherapy, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor drugs, and antioxidants for age-related macular degeneration. Internationally acclaimed experts describe surgeries for epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction syndrome, idiopathic macular hole, choroidal neovascularization, diabetic macular edema, myopic foveoschisis, and retinal vein occlusion. A DVD accompanying the book contains videos of eleven surgical procedures.
