Current guidelines state that 100% of patients with diabetes should be screened for retinal problems. This pocketbook is a concise companion for professionals involved in screening and treating diabetic retinopathy (DR). It explains why screening is required, the different screening models available with their advantages and disadvantages, and the different DR grades. The book also describes specific problems such as ophthalmic lesions, which may present themselves as DR and covers the treatment of DR from both a medical and an ocular perspective. This book is presented in full colour and contains over 100 images. Each chapter is written by a specialist with a specific role in a DR screening scheme.
