Description

Praised by JAMA as "The most complete description of the development, structure, function, pathophysiology, and treatment of the retina and its diseases to be found anywhere," this monumental three-volume work puts all of today's scientific and clinical knowledge of the retina at readers' fingertips. The New Edition has been comprehensively updated and reorganized to reflect all of the very latest scientific and genetic discoveries, diagnostic imaging methods, drug therapies, treatment recommendations, and surgical techniques. The result is an indispensable reference and diagnostic tool for generalists and specialists alike.

Key Features

  • Delivers the editorial expertise of four highly respected authorities, as well as contributions from internationally recognized leaders in visual science, ophthalmology, and vitreoretinal studies.
  • Presents more than 3,400 superb illustrations (2,200 in full color) that capture all forms of retinal disease from every perspective.

Reviews

"As with prior editions, the quality of the writing is excellent. In addition to thorough discussions of normal retinal structure and function, the text provides a comprehensive description of all facets of retinal diseases and their treatment. The photography is of equally high quality. Diagnosis and treatment of retinal disease are critically dependent on color retinal images, which is reflected in the increased use of color photographs in the fourth edition, greatly adding to the value of this text." -- JAMA, October 25, 2006 -- Vol 296, No. 16, Pg. 2031

"An exciting new option is the "e-dition" version, which includes online access to the text. Having access to this superb text from any location is of great value to the ophthalmologist and retinologist. Other online features include 16 videos of retinal surgical procedures, continuing updates to the material, access to a drug information database, and links to pertinent Web sites. Content may be downloaded to a handheld device. These online features are a major advancement and make for a living textbook." -- JAMA, October 25, 2006 -- Vol 296, No. 16, Pg. 2031

"The fourth edition of Retina is well worth the price for any retinologist or ophthalmologist." -- JAMA, October 25, 2006 -- Vol 296, No. 16, Pg. 2031
