This book discusses the newest trends, concepts, and advancements in the management of vitreo-retinal conditions. The field of retina is rapidly changing, with new advances ranging from stem cell therapy, gene therapy and editing, new drug targets, novel delivery systems, and innovative technologies in advanced ocular imaging and surgical techniques. The goal is to provide a way to update practitioners and trainees on how the field of retina is changing. Areas of focus include new technologies, particularly in ocular imaging and vitreo-retinal surgery, major new clinical trials, particularly those that are shifting practice patterns or addressing novel therapies, and novel research that is altering the classification and diagnosis of retinal conditions, as well as management strategies and prognostic predictors for vitreo-retinal diseases.
This volume is essential reading for generalist and specialist ophthalmologists and useful for residents and fellows training in various subspecialties.
Glenn Yiu is a clinician-scientist and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at UC Davis, where he combines clinical practice in vitreo-retinal surgery with laboratory research studying the pathogenesis and treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other retinal diseases. He obtained his medical and graduate degrees from Harvard Medical School, then underwent residency training at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, followed by fellowship in vitreo-retinal surgery at Duke. Dr. Yiu has published numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers and book chapters, and has given lectures nationally and internationally. He is a reviewer for several ophthalmology journals, and is a course lecturer at the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He has also been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Ronald G. Michels Foundation Fellowship Award, the Heed Ophthalmic Foundation Fellowship Award, the Retina Society Fellowship Research Award, and the Macula Society Evangelos S. Gragoudas Award. In 2016, he was named as one of 21 "Emerging Vision Scientists" by the National Alliance for Eye and Vision Research for his cutting edge research.
