With contributions from authors renowned in their area of work, and with a foreword from Eva M Kohner, the book, arranged in 14 chapters, provides a comprehensive coverage of the understanding and management of diabetic retinopathy. The opening chapters deal with diabetes mellitus- that causes retinopathy, and cardiovascular, neurological and renal disorders that are frequently associated with diabetes or with diabetic retinopathy. This is followed by chapters on the epidemiology of diabetic retinopathy, the mechanisms involved in its development and progression, the pathogenesis and the pathological changes. Subsequent chapters describe the fundus, fluorescein angiogram, optical coherence tomogram, and ultrasound features in diabetic retinopathy. The concluding chapters deal with the established management of retinopathy such as attention to systemic factors, laser photocoagulation and vitrectomy, and with the rapidly evolving newer therapies such as intravitreal steroids, intravitreal anti-VEGF agents, and potential oral agents. Each chapter except chapters 2, 3, and 4, starts with a brief historical account on the subject. The book is evidence-based, covering important laboratory and animal experiments, and all the major randomised clinical trials, but does not exclude grey areas or studies that lack the highest level of evidence. Amply illustrated, the high-quality photographs and tables complement the text. The exhaustive references help readers in seeking additional information when needed, and the index allows the reader to access related information across chapters. General ophthalmologists, retina specialists and those in training, and diabetologists and physicians interested in diabetic retinopathy should find it useful either as a text, or as a reference.
