Introduction

This E-book provides the reader with a detailed up-to-date review of diagnostic technologies and their role in clinical practice. Chapters are dedicated specifically to describe the role of current technologies in the management of the leading causes of visual impairment such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, vitreo-retinal disorders, cornea and anterior segment diseases. This E-book will help clinicians to understand and interpret diagnostic tests and critically appraise their performance and limitations. This book is intended for general ophthalmologists and clinicians with a special interest in retinal diseases, glaucoma, anterior segment and cornea. It will also be of interest and value to ophthalmologists in training, scientists, ophthalmic photographers and optometrists.

Preface

Diagnostic Technologies in Ophthalmology

The field of ophthalmology has been revolutionized in recent years with the advent of new diagnostic technologies that allow clinicians to perform a better and more detailed evaluation of their patients with a non-invasive and safe test.

We conceived this eBook with the goal of providing the reader with a detailed up-to-date review of current knowledge on diagnostic techniques. Specifically, chapters are dedicated to describe the role of current technologies in the management of the leading causes of visual impairment such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, vitreo-retinal disorders and cornea diseases.

It is our hope that this eBook will help the clinicians to understand and interpret diagnostic tests and critically appraise their performance and limitations. Although this eBook has been written for general ophthalmologists and those clinicians with a special interest in retinal diseases, glaucoma, anterior segment and cornea, it will also be of interest and value to ophthalmologists in training, scientists, ophthalmic photographers and optometrists.

There are 14 chapters in this eBook. The main assets of this eBook are the easy access of an e-eBook, its content (i.e., novel and clinically relevant information of diagnostic techniques in ophthalmology), and, most importantly, the collaborators who are all leading experts in each topic to whom we are indebted.
