About this book
Pediatric ophthalmology is a unique subspecialty embracing all ocular anatomy and visual function. Within this discipline, the area representing the most diverse and challenging pathophysiology is pediatric retina. A sound grasp of the depth and range of pediatric retinal disorders – from tumors to infections, from retinopathy of prematurity to inherited disorders, from abuse to uveitis – is critical to effective care. This book provides a thorough, in-depth education for both the novice and the sophisticated practitioner. It is also designed to be a ready companion to the busy clinician on a daily basis. The diverse topics are discussed by one or more authors who bring special expertise to the subject. They may be pediatric or retina specialists, but their common denominator is that they know their subject intimately and apply that wealth of knowledge to their patients. From complex retinal physiology to disease diagnosis and management, their aim has been to impart the esoteric and the exceptional in a fashion that is practical and accessible. The editors’ goal has been to make this an invaluable resource: the first book you will recommend to residents or turn to yourself to enhance care of the pediatric retina patient.
