Book Description :

Retinal disease in general, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) specifically, is of major interest worldwide due to the increasing aging population and the revolution in management of wet AMD over the past several years. Age-Related Macular Degeneration presents an up-to-date, clinically relevant monograph on the current diagnosis and management of AMD. Age-Related Macular Degeneration by Drs. Jay S. Duker and Andre J. Witkin serves as a reference for ophthalmologists treating AMD in the clinic as well as other eye care professionals who see and counsel patients with AMD. Chapters will focus on the pathogenesis and risk factors for AMD, the diagnosis of AMD, treatment options, and promising investigative interventions. To help readers gain familiarity recognizing AMD, the book contains multiple images in different formats: high quality color fundus photographs, black-and-white angiograms, black-and-white autofluorence images, and both color and black-and-white OCT images. Relevant to current management of AMD, Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Current Management concentrates on "clinical utility" rather than emphasizing published studies, filling the current void in the market for the general ophthalmology and optometry audience. Comprehensive ophthalmologists, optometrists and retinal specialists will appreciate the book's practical approach to AMD.

Book Description :

Age-related macular degeneration is the most important cause of visual impairment in the elderly. The non-exudative or dry form progresses slowly, the exudative or wet form rapidly (within weeks or months). Refer a patient with suspected exudative form of the disease without delay for investigations and treatment. Also consider the significance of the disease in the patients' daily life.

Book Description :

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in individuals older than 65 years of age. The authors of this book discuss the role of genetics, sunlight, diet, cardiovascular factors, smoking and alcohol as possible risk factors for AMD. Furthermore, the dry form is more common and accounts for about 85-90% of AMD patients in the USA, while Japanese AMD patients predominantely progress to wet-form or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). The function of a serine protein gene, HTRA1, in wet-form AMD patients is explored in detail. Conversely, the final chapter evaluates the therapeutic effects of high omega-3 fatty acids as anti-inflammatory agents in dry AMD patients. The preliminary findings indicate a promising therapeutic regime for dry AMD and perhaps for other retinopathies as well.

Book Description :

Macular degeneration is diagnosed as either dry (non-neovascular) or wet (neovascular). Neovascular refers to growth of new blood vessels in an area, such as the macula, where they are not supposed to be. The dry form is more common than the wet, with about 85%-90% patients diagnosed. The wet form of the disease usually leads to more serious vision loss. Different forms of macular degeneration may occur in younger patients. These non-age related cases may be linked to heredity, diabetes, nutritional deficits, head injury, infection, or other factors. This new book presents the latest research from around the world.

Book Description :

Age-related macular degeneration--AMD--is the most commonly diagnosed eye disorder in people over fifty. Well over two million Americans have been told they have AMD, and that number is expected to grow substantially. While this is a frightening statistic, over the last several years, medical researchers have shown that a number of effective treatments can slow, stop, and even reverse the progress of AMD. Now, best-selling authors Dr. Jeffrey Anshel and Laura Stevens, who herself has been diagnosed with this condition, have joined forces to produce an up-to-date guide to what you need to know to combat and even prevent AMD. The book is divided into four parts. Part One explains how the eye works and how AMD develops, in both its wet and its dry forms. It then looks at the most common risk factors and explains how each of these factors negatively affects the structures of the eye. In Part Two, the authors look at the specific nutrients that affect the various cells of the eye. Included is a discussion of AREDS--the National Eye Institute's study that showed which supplements help protect the eye from disease. Part Three offers an additional weapon against AMD. It explains why diet matters and offers advice on selecting foods that promote eye health while eliminating those that do the most damage. Part Four provides practical suggestions and easy-to-follow tips on how to incorporate this valuable information into your life. If AMD runs in your family or you have been diagnosed with this potentially life-altering condition, it is important to know that there is not only hope, but a real path to a better, healthier life. Knowledge is power, and the more you know, the more likely you are to avoid the consequences of AMD. Let What You Must Know About Age-Related Macular Degeneration help you safeguard one of your most precious gifts--eyesight.

Book Description :

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among adults over the age of 50 in the United States, profoundly impacting quality of life and health care expenditures in this country. The multifactorial etiology of AMD makes it difficult to predict which patients will develop AMD, and among these, which are at risk of progressing to the more severe forms of the disease. The purpose of this project was to determine the individual and composite effects of four genetic variants, cigarette smoking, and body mass index on the development of AMD, including the early form of AMD, which is characterized by the presence of confluent drusen in the retina, as well as the advanced forms of AMD, which include geographic atrophy and choroidal neovascularization. Clinical and genotype data were acquired from a database containing de-identified patient information aggregated from multiple study sites.

Book Description :

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the developed countries. In the past decade, great progress has been made in understanding the pathobiology and genetics of this blinding disease, as well as in finding new therapies for its treatment. These include the discovery of several genes that are associated with the risk of AMD, new anti-VEGF treatments for wet AMD and new imaging techniques to diagnose and monitor the AMD. All chapters in this book were contributed by outstanding research scientists and clinicians in the area of AMD. I hope this timely book will provide the basic scientists and clinicians with an opportunity to learn about the recent advances in the field of AMD.

Book Description :

Age-related macular degeneration has become the most common cause of blindness. With population ageing AMD will become an ever more prevalent cause of visual loss unless more effective modes of treatment will be found. Here, an expert panel of experienced clinicians and eminent basic scientists provide for an authoritative review on the pathogenesis, epidemiology and risk factors, diagnostic methods and imaging modalities for age-related macular degeneration. Many photographs and diagrams add to a clear understanding.

Abstract. Purpose: To project the number of persons with late age‐related macular degeneration (AMD) in Scandinavia through 2040. Methods: Age‐ and sex‐specific prevalence rates of late AMD (choroidal neovascularization and geographic atrophy) from the European Eye Study and the Eye Diseases Prevalence Research Group were applied to the projected Danish, Norwegian and Swedish population from 2012 to 2040. Results: A total of 187 000 persons aged ≥65 years in Scandinavia are currently affected by late AMD: 47 000 in Denmark, 43 000 in Norway and 97 000 in Sweden. Owing to an ageing population, the number of persons affected by late AMD will increase 75% to 328 000 in 2040. Conclusion: The number of patients with late AMD in Scandinavia is expected to increase substantially over the next three decades, resulting in increased demand for ophthalmic health services.
