From Diagnosis to Treatment
David S. Boyer, Homayoun Tabandeh
With a focus on giving those diagnosed with macular degeneration the necessary information to make sound treatment choices, this reference aims to answer patients' questions and ease their anxiety. The book provides information on the symptoms, causes, and emotional impact of macular degeneration; how the disease is diagnosed; choosing the right physician; and how to adapt the home and workplace to be “eye friendly.” In addition, it outlines the newest treatment options, drugs and surgical techniques, ways to slow the progression of the disease, and the importance of nutrition and general fitness on eye health. Written by two doctors with decades of experience treating thousands of patients, it supplies essential facts while affirming that people living with the disease can still enjoy a normal, happy life.
