This book provides an overview about AMD; an update on the current understanding of AMD, pathophysiology, the use of diagnostic tests, the management of both non-neovascular and neovascular AMD as well as future directions in treatment and its limitations. It also looks into the future with potential treatment options that are now under investigation in clinical trials.
