This text presents the range of clinical problems encountered by ophthalmologists in managing patients with diabetic retinopathy and provides an evidence-based approach to solving these problems. The unique features of the book include exposition with the perspective of evidence-based medicine. Exposition is grounded with clinical examples, and questions and discussions follow chapters to encourage thinking about problematic situations and areas of controversy. It also incorporates a wealth of information from the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research network. The increasing frequency of diabetic patients in ophthalmic practice makes this a timely and practical reference for ophthalmologists and retina specialists.
