About this book

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.
