Dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD).- Neovascular age-related macular degeneration.- Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy.- Angioid streaks.- Ocular histoplasmosis.- Central serous chorioretinopathy/pachychoroid eye diseases.- Postsurgical cytoid macular edema.- Myopic macular degeneration and choroidal neovascularization.- Photic retinopathy.- Macular telangiectasis.- Perifoveal exudative vascular anomalous complex (PEVAC)
This atlas contains chapters on common and rare macular diseases including variants of age-related macular degeneration (dry, neovascular, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy), cystoid macular edema, macular telangiectasia, central serous retinopathy and pachychoroid disease, photic retinopathy, presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome, myopic degeneration, angioid streaks, and a recently described entity perifoveal exudative vascular anomalous complex. The atlas provides numerous representative images using various modalities to help the reader recognize the condition. The inclusion of images using techniques more recently adopted into clinical practice such as autofluoresence, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT-angiography makes this work an important reference. The concise text reviews basic concepts of etiology, diagnosis, and management in a very accessible format. The contributions of numerous internationally recognized experts on each topic provides the most up-to-date analysis of each condition and provides excellent summaries of recent work in the field.
Macular Disorders is one of the nine volumes of the series Retina Atlas. This series provides global perspective on vitreoretinal diseases, covering imaging basics, retinal vascular disease, ocular inflammatory disease, retinal degeneration, surgical retina, macular disorders, ocular oncology, pediatric retina and trauma. Retina Atlas is spread over 9 volumes and about 100 chapters, covering validated and comprehensive information on retinal disorders.
Dr. Ivana Kim, MD is Associate Professor of ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School and serves as Co-Director of the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology Age-Related Macular Degeneration Center of Excellence as well as Co-Director of the Ocular Melanoma Center at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. She graduated from Harvard Medical School and completed her ophthalmology residency and vitreoretinal fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Her clinical practice includes surgical and medical retina, with a focus on age-related macular degeneration and uveal melanoma. She is actively involved in clinical trials for retinal disease as well as translational research in AMD and ocular melanoma. She has published extensively, and is a member of many prestigious societies including the American Ophthalmological Society, the Macula Society, the Retina Society, and the Club Jules Gonin.
