Abstract
The Handbook of Nutrition in Ophthalmology is the first general text on nutrition and eye health created for physicians, nutritionists, and researchers. Dr. Richard D. Semba provides important links between the epidemic of obesity and implications it has for eye disease and blindness. The volume addresses three broad themes throughout. The first is that a healthy diet as a major lifelong habit will likely have an impact on reducing a substantial portion of visual impairment and blindness. The second is that a historical perspective is essential to understanding current challenges in ophthalmology, medicine, and public health. The third theme is that many nutrients play a role in oxidative stress and inflammation, and this theory has emerged as a major underlying hypothesis in the pathogenesis of eye diseases. The volume also includes chapters addressing nutritional aspects of preventing eye disease in diabetes mellitus and other optical neuropathies, making the Handbook of Nutrition in Ophthalmology a unique book for a broad spectrum of physicians and practitioners.

Abstract
This handbook is an overview of the diagnosis, treatment and long-term management of diabetic retinopathy, within the context of overall long-term diabetes disease management. Diabetes-related eye damage (diabetic retinopathy) is one of the most common complications of diabetes, affecting approximately 30-40% of people with diabetes. The situation is so severe that in countries such as the US and UK, diabetic retinopathy is currently the leading cause of blindness in people age 20 to 74 years old. Fortunately, there are several existing and emerging treatments on the horizon and with adequate control of the underlying diabetes, this condition can be successfully managed.
Contents
Impact of diabetic retinopathy -- A basic scientific understanding of diabetic retinopathy -- Diabetic retinopathy screening -- Medical management of diabetic retinopathy -- Diabetes and cataracts -- Diabetes and glaucoma -- Ocular surface disease in diabetes -- Management of diabetic macular edema -- Management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy -- Future therapies.
