Main description:

This book provides a comprehensive, in-depth review of our current understanding of the growth of blood vessels within the eye. Novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of ocular angiogenesis are discussed, as are the unique challenges presented by delivery of drugs to the eye. The book emphasizes basic principles rather than specific experimental results, although recently acquired data is frequently cited to illustrate points of broader theoretical significance.
