This book addresses diabetic retinopathy, an eye disease that remains one of the main causes of vision loss if not diagnosed and managed properly. It aims to cover the entire spectrum of the disease by describing its clinical identification and characterization, pathophysiology, epidemiology, and medical and surgical management. Diabetic Retinopathy also offers a complete overview of the present understanding of diabetic retinopathy, covering current practice but also including original contributions that offer novel perspectives for looking at and addressing this disease.
The author has dedicated his lifetime to the study of diabetic retinal disease
and has organized this book around his personal experience but at the same time
giving the necessary information for updated management of diabetic retinopathy.
Diabetic Retinopathy will be especially useful for postgraduate students in
diabetology, retina specialists and researchers.
