About the Book
This book is designed to transfer useful techniques for the clinical management of diabetic patients. It is an attempt to go beyond the results of clinical trials and to address the nuances of treating diabetics by compressing the clinical experience of the authors into a format that hopefully makes it easy to expand your skills. The book is written for residents, beginning retina fellows, and comprehensive ophthalmologists--as well as for anyone interested in broadening their understanding of these complex patients.

Reviews of the first edition:
"Diabetic Retinopathy for the Comprehensive Ophthalmologist delivers exactly what it promises: an appropriately balanced, straightforward guide to the management of diabetic retinopathy geared toward the general ophthalmologist."
British Journal of Ophthalmology
"I was delighted to open your “Diabetic Retinopathy for the Comprehensive Ophthalmologist,” to find a well-written, common-sense, informative book that should have immense value not only in the developed but particularly in the developing world. I plan to make this known and I am greatly appreciative of your making it available at www.drcobook.com."
