The first volume of this set brings information about retinal vascular diseases, choroidal neovascularization related diseases, vitreomacular interface, and other macular disorders. Written by a group of retina specialists, this book is an excellent resource for knowledge about retinal disorders. The streamlined format and evidence based medicine presented in the volume make this book the perfect reference for medical students, residents, general ophthalmologists and retina specialists.

Foreword

Drs. Torres, Garcia, Gordon and Kon deliver a very useful and practical work that contains, in this volume, a collection of images of retinal vascular diseases and macular diseases. The editors have recruited a vast array of retina specialists from four continents to write the different chapters that constitute this volume. The chapters are structured in such a way that the reader may easily find pearls about the diagnosis, differential and treatment, accompanied by beautiful pictures using different imaging modalities. Our subspecialty has had tremendous advances in recent years regarding diagnostic imaging, and I’m sure ophthalmologists and residents will find this compilation really useful and enjoyable.
