This text examines the vascular anatomy and physiology of the eye as well as the assessment of ocular circulation in health and disease. It offers a cutting-edge analysis of the eye's blood supply and how it is affected by conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. 425 illustrations -- including 250 in full color -- detail anatomy, techniques, the results of imaging studies, and more.
Provides a cutting-edge analysis of the eye’s blood supply and how it is affected by conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
Describes the latest noninvasive methods for measuring blood flow, and explains how to use this advanced technology to evaluate patients.
Features more than 435 illustrations—over 345 in full color—that richly depict anatomy, techniques, imaging findings, and more.
Offers the expertise of authors who have been involved extensively in the design and clinical application of new technologies for the assessment of ocular circulation.

In the second edition of Atlas of Ocular Blood Flow, Dr. Alon Harris details the vascular anatomy and physiology of the eye, analyzes the eye’s blood supply, and evaluates the latest technologies available for assessing patients. He shows you how irregular ocular blood flow patterns can indicate systemic or medication-related conditions, and presents images and actual case reports to illustrate the use of new technologies such as OCT with Doppler application and non-invasive retinal oximetry. With more than 400 illustrations, most in full color, this is the only atlas worldwide that gives you pictorial presentations, anatomical illustrations, and detailed descriptions of the methods available to measure blood flow.
"This is an informative and richly illustrated atlas that contains practical and useful information about normal and abnormal ocular blood flow and its assessment. This book will appeal to clinicians and scientists with an interest in ocular blood flow. Also, the atlas will provide essential information for trainees with a special interest in the field."
--Graefe's Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmology, 242:687, 25 June 2004
