  • Alon Harris
  • Key Features

    • Gain a clear understanding of the anatomy/physiology of the blood supply to and within the eye to help make more effective clinical decisions.
    • Analyze the potential effects of blood flow changes in various eye illnesses to see how they are influenced by diseases like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

    Rely on the extensive experience of the authors in implementing new technologies to better access ocular circulation.

    Table of Contents

    I. Ocular vasculature, anatomical structure and function
    1. Anatomy (different illustrations on anatomical structures in the orbit)
