About this book

Microperimetry allows precise functional examination of the retina and optic nerve and is especially valuable for evaluation of the macular area. This fully up-to-date textbook on microperimetry, 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  the context of multimodal imaging scenario is 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.

  2. Clinical Applications of Microperimetry and Multimodal Retinal Imaging


“This is the first book on microperimetry and multiple retinal imaging techniques, introducing a multi-dimensional approach to the retina and the integration of our knowledge of the macula in health and disease. It is a valuable tool for those who are interested in integrating pathology and functionality, and who want to broaden their understanding of the complexity of the retina.” (Shimon Rumelt, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 255, 2017)
