This title is the recipient of the Royal Society of Medicine Book Awards 2002 and the highly commended British Medical Association Book Awards 2003. "Diseases of the Macula" provides a practical and clinically oriented approach to the diagnosis and management of macular disorders. It covers not only diseases that primarily affect the macula, such as age-related macular degeneration, but also those that might have an indirect but never-the-less significant effect on macular function, such as vascular and inflammatory diseases.Many diseases in this book are illustrated with brief case studies, to help bring them to life and facilitate learning. Liberally illustrated throughout with over 400 photographs (300 in full colour), and supplemented with case studies, this book is carefully organised so that the most important conditions are described towards the beginning of each chapter, with the less common conditions following. This highly accessible and practical title will be invaluable to the general ophthalmologist and to optometrists, and particularly to trainees.
