With almost twice as many chapters, this new edition of Pediatric Retina now includes important information on the development of the eye and retina, basic/translational science of retinal diseases in infants and children, telemedicine using wide-angle imaging for diagnosis and longitudinal management of infants and children, as well as international approaches to care with focus on retinopathy of prematurity. With its comprehensive coverage and the major advances in treatment, both the general ophthalmologist and the specialist will find this book to be a valuable resource in providing effective, state-of-the-art care for infants and children with pediatric retinal conditions.
