This book takes a clinical approach to the patient with a genetic disease that affects the eye. The chapters on particular types of diseases follow the same organizational format, covering history, pathogenesis and etiology, epidemiology, classification, clinical manifestations and diagnosis, and treatment. The recent progress achieved in the molecular genetics of eye disease is fully reflected throughout the book. It is written by leading experts in the field and provides clinical, molecular genetic and management information on common and rare diseases. The chapters are heavily illustrated and provide a good Atlas for the practicing ophthalmologist or geneticist.

This book presents the state of the art in genetic eye research in Asia and the Pacific. Though there has been an explosion of information on genetic eye research in western countries, more than sixty percent of the human genes involved in eye diseases in the Asian and Pacific population remain unknown. However, new efforts and a new awareness have sparked important discussions on the subject, and new plans are being implemented to discover the genes responsible for many eye diseases in the population. The book reviews the latest findings; its content ranges from genetic aspects of human migration to DNA sequence analysis, genome-wide association analysis, and disease phenotypes. The efforts of the Asian Eye Genetic Consortium (AEGC) are also discussed. The book’s editors have been instrumental in developing strategies for discovering the new Asian genes involved in many eye diseases. All chapters were written by leading researchers working on Asian eye genetics from the fields of Human Genetics, Ophthalmology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Sensory Sciences, and Clinical Research. Advances in Vision Research, Volume I will prove to be a major resource for all researchers, clinicians, clinical researchers, and allied eye health professionals with an interest in eye diseases among the Asian population.

Atlas of Inherited Retinal Diseases

Atlas of Inherited Retinal Diseases

Author: Stephen H. Tsang

Publisher: Springer

This Atlas of Inherited Retinal Disorders provides a thorough overview of various inherited retinal dystrophies with emphasis on phenotype characteristics and how they relate to the most frequently encountered genes. It also meets the previously unmet needs of PhD students who will benefit from seeing the phenotypes of genes they work on and study. Further, because genetic-testing costs are quite high and spiraling higher, this Atlas will help geneticists familiarize themselves with the candidate gene approach to test patients’ genomes, enabling more cost-efficient testing. This invaluable atlas is organized into eight sections starting with an introduction to the basic knowledge on retinal imaging, followed by diseases listed according to inheritance pattern and disorders with extraocular manifestations grouped by defining features. This structure will be intuitive to clinicians and students studying inherited retinal disorders.

The book focuses on describing the importance of genetics in eye diseases in a comprehensive and concise manner. Mutations in different set of genes have been detected and incriminated in complex mechanisms of causing leading eye diseases such as cataract and glaucoma. This book written by well-established ophthalmologists and geneticists presents a complicated subject in simple and easy to understand manner. Chapters cover the concept of gene therapy which is an emerging subject with high potential. The book includes a separate chapter on genetic counseling, which has become an integral component of ophthalmology. The book will assist the practicing ophthalmologists in early diagnosis of genetic eye diseases as well as help the geneticists in understaning the basic concepts. It will also be useful for students who are preparing for MD, MS, DNB and FRCS examinations.
