This book provides not only an up-to-date discussion of photodynamic
therapy applied to chorioretinal neovascular disease, but it also summarizes
the background of current knowledge and previously accepted treatment of these
diseases. It does this in 134 pages divided into 10 brief, copiously illustrated
chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the pathophysiology and natural history of age-related
macular degeneration (ARMD). Chapter 2 does the same for ocular histoplasmosis,
myopia, idiopathic choroidal neovascularization, and angioid streaks.
