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.
