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.
New to this edition


  • Diagnose ocular, systemic, or medication-related conditions in patients by measuring their ocular blood flow.
  • Master the newest techniques and glimpse new technologies that will be available for assessing ocular blood flow in the future.

Visualize anatomy, techniques, and imaging findings with more than 400 illustrations.
