Diabetes mellitus is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide, with diabetic retinopathy (DR) remaining the most common cause of eye disease for people with diabetes. Current guidelines state that all patients with diabetes should be screened for retinal problems. Diabetic Retinopathy, second edition, offers a practical, clinically focused guide to DR. Featuring 20 concise chapters this resource covers the basics of diabetes mellitus and ocular anatomy, why screening is required, the epidemiology and nature of diabetic retinopathy, as well as associated ocular diseases. It has been fully updated to include the latest trial data and newest developments in the management of diabetic retinopathy, as well as three new chapters covering patients of concern, imaging techniques in diabetic retinopathy, and an overview of treatment strategies for diabetic eye disease.

Part of the Oxford Diabetes Library series, this pocketbook is a concise companion for professionals involved in screening and treating diabetic retinopathy.
