This highly anticipated new edition brings together an expert group of authors to provide a comprehensive, systematic sourcebook on genetic diseases of the eye. This richly illustrated, full color text covers areas such as: malformations; refractive errors, the cornea, glaucoma and cataracts; retina and the optic nerve; eye movement disorders, and systemic disease of the eye. The new edition remains grounded in a sound clinical approach to the patient with a genetic disease that affects the eye. Each chapter emphasizes the clinical aspects of disease, tying them to the underlying molecular mechanisms and outlining current therapy. While the molecular underpinnings, testing methods and therapy of genetic disorders continues to evolve, the clinical aspects are well established and are emphasized in this book. A large number of color figures are utilized to illustrate the various chapters and provide an essential Atlas aspect to this publication. This book is a 'must have' for pediatric ophthalmologists, retina specialists, and geneticists.
New to this edition: - Several chapters have been dedicated to individual disorders, especially the retinal dystrophies, whose molecular genetic basis has been elucidated in the last decade or so. - A large chapter on genetic counseling has been added to the book that is case and family-based and provides a practical approach to counseling patients and families with inherited eye diseases. - A new chapter on the genetics of age-related macular degeneration and on proteomics as applies to age-related macular degeneration adds a new dimension to this book. - A new chapter on teratogens and ocular malformations by Kirstin Stromland, one of the world leaders in this field. - A new section on cancer genetics and the eye - New chapters on ocular imaging and gene therapy for inherited eye diseases.

Review quote

The new edition of Genetic Diseases of the Eye is an essential reference book for ophthalmologists and clinical geneticists who have an interest in inherited eye disorders. The book covers all the major genetic disorders of the eye, including developmental eye anomalies and those eye abnormalities that occur as part of multisystem disorders. Each of the chapters is written by leading experts in the field which ensures that each subject is covered in depth and the
information is completely up to date. In addition there is sound practical advice about diagnosis and clinical management. It is an outstanding book that should take pride of place on the bookshelf of all clinicians working with patients with genetic eye disease. * Anthony Moore, Professo, University College of London Institute of Ophthalmology, Moorfields Eye Hosptial * Dr. Traboulsi manages to flawlessly integrate the expanding knowledge of individual genes and their molecular functions with the evolving understanding of the clinical syndromes to which they are linked. * Doody's * With the rapidly evolving identification of both the genes and the mechanisms of genetic disorders of the brain and visual system, with the close approach of targeted genetic diagnostics, and, even more exciting, the appearance of gene replacement therapy for selected genetic eye disorders, we have waited patiently for the next generation of Genetic Diseases of the Eye. This liberally illustrated text covers both basic mechanisms and clinical spectrums with ample
supplements of current references. As we move quickly toward whole exome sequencing for both disease phenotypes with multiple causal genes and the malformation syndromes with no apparent single causal gene, this text is an essential companion for every practitioner in genetics and
ophthalmology!" * Richard Alan Lewis, M.D., M.S., Baylor College of Medicine *
