Abstract
This book provides a concise overview over the pathology of retinal angiogenic diseases and explains why anti-angiogenic therapy is effective in so many patients. The reader is guided through the various clinical indications for anti-angiogenic therapy and made aware of its merits as well as current challenges and limitations. It is explained how, since its introduction for the treatment of exudative age-related macular degeneration in 2006, anti-angiogenic therapy has revolutionized the way in which we treat a range of ocular diseases. All of the authors are established experts in their respective fields who share their extensive knowledge and clinical experience with the reader. This book is both a valuable introduction to anti-angiogenic therapy in ophthalmology and a day-to-day companion for all ophthalmologists seeing patients with some of the most prevalent retinal diseases.

Abstract
This book is a comprehensive source of authoritative information on the clinical features, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and management of medical and surgical retinal diseases. The Manual has 122 chapters, organized in 18 sections covering medical and surgical aspects of retinal diseases such as trauma, AMD, retinal inflammations, infections, endophthalmitis, pediatric diseases, dystrophies, and tumors. Easy-to-read chapters convey the fundamental concepts with the aid of clinical photographs, imaging studies (including fluorescein and indocyanineangiograms, ultrasonograms, CT scans, and MRI scans) and tables. The manual is of value to a wide range of practitioners and trainees, including students, residents, fellows and ophthalmologists who treat retinal diseases.

Abstract
This is a concise how-to of successfully treating previously deemed "untreatable" retinal and optic nerve conditions with stem cell therapies. Based on the results of 11 years of experience treating approximately 600 patients, this text will serve as a template for others to develop similar stem cell based treatments in their specialty. Author, Jeffrey N. Weiss, MD is specifically poised to offer dependable insight on stem cell surgery for both the retina and the optic nerve, having performed the first retinal stem cell surgery in 2010, with Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved studies that are registered with the National Institute of Health (NIH), and listed on ClinicalTrials.gov. Featuring all original work from Dr. Jeffrey Weiss's specialization in stem cell ophthalmology, this book is primarily written for ophthalmologists, but structured so that specialists across disciplines can take the model presented and create their own studies and clinical trials using stem cell therapies.

This is a French translation of the English pamphlet, 0461, "Retinal Treatments". Light is reflected from objects and enters the pupil. It passes through the lens and vitreous onto the retina. The retina changes light into a message which the optic nerve carries to the brain. When the brain receives the message, you have vision. Change or damage to the retina can cause loss of vision. This pamphlet explains how to tell if your retina is damaged, what problems can happen to the retina, and types of treatments and surgery.

Abstract
This book discusses the newest trends, concepts, and advancements in the management of vitreo-retinal conditions. The field of retina is rapidly changing, with new advances ranging from stem cell therapy, gene therapy and editing, new drug targets, novel delivery systems, and innovative technologies in advanced ocular imaging and surgical techniques. The goal is to provide a way to update practitioners and trainees on how the field of retina is changing. Areas of focus include new technologies, particularly in ocular imaging and vitreo-retinal surgery, major new clinical trials, particularly those that are shifting practice patterns or addressing novel therapies, and novel research that is altering the classification and diagnosis of retinal conditions, as well as management strategies and prognostic predictors for vitreo-retinal diseases. This volume is essential reading for generalist and specialist ophthalmologists and useful for residents and fellows training in various subspecialties.
