Author: Alio Jorge L, Vega Alfredo, Soria Felipe

The book aims to instruct the corneal surgeon in the ways in which femtosecond lasers can be used for corneal grafting surgery. They focus on the use of femtosecond laser technology in corneal surgery.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Current Management

by Jay S. Duker M.D., Andre J. Witkin M.D.

Retinal disease in general, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) specifically, is of major interest worldwide due to the increasing aging population and the revolution in management of wet AMD over the past several years. Age-Related Macular Degeneration presents an up-to-date, clinically relevant monograph on the current diagnosis and management of AMD. Age-Related Macular Degeneration by Drs. Jay S. Duker and Andre J. Witkin serves as a reference for ophthalmologists treating AMD in the clinic as well as other eye care professionals who see and counsel patients with AMD. Chapters will focus on the pathogenesis and risk factors for AMD, the diagnosis of AMD, treatment options, and promising investigative interventions. To help readers gain familiarity recognizing AMD, the book contains multiple images in different formats: high quality color fundus photographs, black- and-white angiograms, black-and-white autofluorence images, and both color and black-and-white OCT images. Relevant to current management of AMD, Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Current Management concentrates on “clinical utility” rather than emphasizing published studies, filling the current void in the market for the general ophthalmology and optometry audience. Comprehensive ophthalmologists, optometrists and retinal specialists will appreciate the book’s practical approach to AMD.
