This volume offers every clinical ophthalmologist valuable guidance in implementing the results of the latest multicenter clinical trials in practice. Chapters on all major disease entities review all pertinent trials, bring these trials into a real-world setting, and show how the results should influence day-to-day patient management. Coverage includes diseases in all ophthalmologic subspecialties--cornea/external disease, glaucoma, retina, pediatric ophthalmology, ocular oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, and oculoplastics. More than 170 illustrations, 92 in full color, complement the text. General ophthalmologists will have at their fingertips, in an easily digestible format, the current standard of patient care across the spectrum of ophthalmology.
