Diseases of the Vitreo-Macular Interface (Essentials in Ophthalmology)

This clinically oriented book is the first to be devoted whollyto the diagnosis and treatment of vitreo-macular interface disease,characterized by a combination of vitreo-macular adhesion (VMA) andvitreo-macular traction (VMT) that is implicated in a variety ofdisorders. World-renowned experts in the field discussepidemiologic, anatomic, and physiologic aspects, document thefindings obtained with newer imaging techniques, such as spectraldomain optical coherence tomography, describe the treatmentoptions, and report on the results of preclinical and clinicaltrials, including some previously unpublished findings. This bookwill prove invaluable for ophthalmologists as we advance toward afuture in which treatments of diseases such as age-related maculardegeneration and diabetic retinopathy will likely requireadjunctive therapy to tackle VMA/VMT concurrently.
