Review Text

From the reviews:

"This book is a comprehensive review of the retinal degenerations, focusing particularly on a range of macular degenerations and the inherited retinal dystrophies. ... is essential reading for even the experienced low vision clinician and anyone wishing to understand the difficulties faced by patients who are diagnosed with sight-threatening retinal conditions. ... will be of interest to research groups. ... This is a valuable book and is essential for low vision clinicians. I recommend it to any optometrist with a particular interest in retinal disease."
