Summary The advent of intravitreal treatment with anti-vascular endothelium growth factor (anti-VEGF) antibodies and steroids has revolutionized the management of diabetic retinopathy. This timely 2nd edition delves into therapies involving anti-VEGF, and addresses the complexities inherent in the practical application of these clinical trials, from issues of patient compliance, to consideration of the patient?s overall health status.

Written and edited by well-respected leaders in the field, Clinical Strategies in the Management of Diabetic Retinopathy, 2nd edition is an ideal resource for ophthalmologists aiming to provide optimal clinical management for this sight-threatening disease
