Summary:
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible central vision loss in developed countries.There have been rapid developments of therapies that today can halt or even reverse aspects of vision loss resulting from AMD among those most severely affected, and there is promise of future therapies that may prevent vision loss. This book provides an overview about AMD; an update on the current understanding of AMD, pathophysiology, the use of diagnostic tests, the management of both non-neovascular and neovascular AMD as well as future directions in treatment and its limitations. It also looks into the future with potential treatment options that are now under investigation in clinical trials.

Age-related macular degeneration has become the most common cause of blindness. With population ageing AMD will become an ever more prevalent cause of visual loss unless more effective modes of treatment will be found. Here, an expert panel of experienced clinicians and eminent basic scientists provide for an authoritative review on the pathogenesis, epidemiology and risk factors, diagnostic methods and imaging modalities for age-related macular degeneration. Many photographs and diagrams add to a clear understanding.

The Handbook of Nutrition, Diet and the Eye is the first book to thoroughly address common features and etiological factors in how dietary and nutritional factors affect the eye. The ocular system is perhaps one of the least studied organs in diet and nutrition, yet the consequences of vision loss can be devastating. One of the biggest contributors to complete vision loss in the western hemisphere is diabetes, precipitated by metabolic syndrome. In some developing countries, micronutrient deficiencies are major

Macular degeneration is diagnosed as either dry (non-neovascular) or wet (neovascular). Neovascular refers to growth of new blood vessels in an area, such as the macula, where they are not supposed to be. The dry form is more common than the wet, with about 85%-90% patients diagnosed. The wet form of the disease usually leads to more serious vision loss. Different forms of macular degeneration may occur in younger patients. These non-age related cases may be linked to heredity, diabetes,

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in individuals older than 65 years of age. The authors of this book discuss the role of genetics, sunlight, diet, cardiovascular factors, smoking and alcohol as possible risk factors for AMD. Furthermore, the dry form is more common and accounts for about 85-90% of AMD patients in the USA, while Japanese AMD patients predominantely progress to wet-form or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV).

Aging research on the human eyes crosses all areas of ophthalmology and also relies upon biological, morphological, physiological, and biochemical tools for its study. This book reviews all aspects of human eye aging. In addition to descriptions of age-related changes in almost all the structures of the human eyes, the authors also include interesting accounts of personal experiments and data. It provides an extensive panorama of what happens during aging in the eye.
