About this book
Microperimetry allows precise functional examination of the retina and optic nerve and is included in the current multimodal (or integrated) imaging approach to the retina, primarily for the evaluation of the macular area. Macular disorders are among the major blinding conditions, and diagnosis, follow-up, and treatment are based on functional and morphological retinal evaluation.
This fully up-to-date textbook on microperimetry and multimodal retinal imaging, written by leading experts in the field, will also serve as an atlas and diagnostic reference. It is designed for use by both ophthalmologists and optometrists in daily clinical practice and clinical research, and the contents thus range from basic technical information to the most advanced clinical applications. Past and current microperimetry techniques are reviewed, and the role of microperimetry in relation to other retinal imaging techniques is fully explained. The full range of clinical applications is then discussed, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, myopia, retinal dystrophies, disorders of the vitreoretinal interface, inflammatory chorioretinal diseases, toxic retinopathies, glaucoma and low vision.
