Liberally illustrated throughout with over 400 photographs (300 in full colour), this reference provides a practical and clinically oriented approach to the diagnosis and management of macular disorders. It covers not only diseases that primarily affect the macula, such as age-related macular degeneration, but also those that might have an indirect but never-the-less significant effect on macular function, such as vascular and inflammatory diseases. Many diseases in this book are illustrated with brief case studies, to help bring them to life and facilitate learning.

Jack Kanski is arguably the best-known author in ophthalmology worldwide. His textbook Clinical Ophthalmology, published by Butterworth-Heinemann, is a competitor to our Spalton, and is the current textbook of choice for ophthalmology trainees and optometrists worldwide. He is also the author of our extremely successful Ophthalmology: Clinical Signs and Differential Diagnosis, published in 1998 under the Mosby imprint. In the words of one UK professor of ophthalmology: "Any book with Jack Kanski's name on it is likely to be a winner. He has an excellent track record and a large number of trainees, seniors and libraries are likely to buy the book simply on this basis."
