Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive neuro-retinal disease and the leading cause of central vision loss among elderly individuals in the developed countries. Modern ocular imaging technologies constitute an essential component of the evaluation of these patients and have contributed extensively to our understanding of the disease. A challenge with any review of ocular imaging technologies is the rapid pace of progress and evolution of these instruments. Nonetheless, for proper and optimal use of these technologies, it is essential for the user to understand the technical principles underlying the imaging modality and their role in assessing the disease in various settings. Indeed, AMD, like many other retinal diseases, benefits from a multimodal imaging approach to optimally characterize the disease. In this chapter, we will review the various imaging technologies currently used in the assessment and management of AMD.

Abstract

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive neuro-retinal disease and the leading cause of central vision loss among elderly individuals in the developed countries. Modern ocular imaging technologies constitute an essential component of the evaluation of these patients and have contributed extensively to our understanding of the disease. A challenge with any review of ocular imaging technologies is the rapid pace of progress and evolution of these instruments. Nonetheless, for proper and optimal use of these technologies, it is essential for the user to understand the technical principles underlying the imaging modality and their role in assessing the disease in various settings. Indeed, AMD, like many other retinal diseases, benefits from a multimodal imaging approach to optimally characterize the disease. In this chapter, we will review the various imaging technologies currently used in the assessment and management of AMD.
