Authoritative and research-based, Age-Related Macular Degeneration summarizes the latest evidence-based research on this complex disorder and translates these advancements into practical, actionable knowledge. This concise resource covers the fundamentals of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) diagnosis and treatment along with a modern definition of the disorder that acknowledges the range of presentations that ophthalmologists see in patients. Offering useful clinical guidance in addition to capturing new therapeutic approaches in the pipeline, this book is an essential reference for ophthalmologists, optometrists, and researchers.

Focuses on practical application of the latest evidence-based research, summarizing current clinical trials and translating advancements into clinical practice.


Provides a well-rounded view of the diagnosis of age-related macular degeneration at various stages through a work-up of key differential diagnoses for both wet and dry AMD.


Summarizes the genetics of AMD and how genetics can impact response to therapy.


Includes an overview of key imaging modalities, such as fundus autofluorescence (FAF), fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICG), optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT-angiography (OCTA).


Covers current therapeutic approaches as well as those on the horizon, including anti-VEGF therapy, Brolucizumab and Abicipar pegol, immunotherapy, and complement modulators.
