Pathologic myopia that is due to axial elongation causes thinning of the retina and choroid, especially in cases of posterior staphyloma. The result of this myopia is the development of various kinds of chorioretinal atrophy in the posterior pole, with a gradual progression of the atrophic changes extending over several decades. Until now, studies of atrophic lesions and their clinical course have been incomplete, and diagnostic standards and classification of chorioretinopathy have been unclear. The Atlas of Posterior Fundus Changes in Pathologic Myopia discusses these and other important questions on the basis of long-term observation and research. A major feature of the book is the presentation of many case studies, with generous use of full-color photographs to show in detail the course of fundus changes. The atlas is valuable resource not only for ophthalmologists interested in myopia but for optometrists, opticians, and medical students.
