Synopsis:

Practical Genomics for Clinical Ophthalmology provides in-depth coverage of the clinical applications of genomics in eye disease, with a key emphasis on case-study based instruction in patient care and genetic counseling aspects, genetic and genomic diagnostics, and treatment pathways. The book presents the latest information on genetic and genomic test results, best practices for delivery of results to patients and families, and ongoing research into therapeutics, with specific chapters covering non-syndromic inherited retinal disease, syndromic IRD, vitreoretinopathies, lens abnormalities, corneal disease, albinism, anterior segment dysgenesis, glaucoma, developmental eye abnormalities, nystagmus, ocular motility disorders, optic neuropathies, phacomatoses, and retinoblastoma, and more.

In addition, clinical case studies illustrate examples of common genetic eye disorders and highlight vital learning points for the reader.
