Description
Geriatric patients have unique responses to treatment and disease, often harboring co-morbidities that can impact evaluation, treatment, and prognosis, which can require specialized expertise or experience.
Geriatric Ophthalmology, Second Edition draws upon the successful first edition by applying a competency-based approach to these patients, improving awareness, increasing understanding, and encouraging expertise about geriatric issues among eye care professionals.

These intersecting conditions and their treatment are comprehensively discussed in this fully updated second edition, complete with additional high-quality illustrations and photos. Each chapter utilizes illustrative cases to exemplify the points of care encompassed by the competencies. Topics of special interest are included, such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, low vision, all diseases of aging, and the effect of vision loss on the geriatric patient’s quality of life. Medical students, residents, fellows, clinicians, and allied health personnel alike will find this to be a comprehensive resource and exceptional guide to the care of older patients with geriatric ophthalmology problems.
