The book focuses on describing the importance of genetics in eye diseases in a comprehensive and concise manner. Mutations in different set of genes have been detected and incriminated in complex mechanisms of causing leading eye diseases such as cataract and glaucoma. This book written by well-established ophthalmologists and geneticists presents a complicated subject in simple and easy to understand manner. Chapters cover the concept of gene therapy which is an emerging subject with high potential. The book includes a separate chapter on genetic counseling, which has become an integral component of ophthalmology. The book will assist the practicing ophthalmologists in early diagnosis of genetic eye diseases as well as help the geneticists in understaning the basic concepts. It will also be useful for students who are preparing for MD, MS, DNB and FRCS examinations.

This third volume, with three supporting editors, broadens its focus on genetic eye research from the Asian to the global scale. New efforts and a new awareness have sparked important discussions on genetic eye research, and new plans are being implemented to identify the genes responsible for numerous eye diseases. The book introduces the latest findings on genetics in eye diseases, gene therapy, and genome-wide association analysis, and the efforts of the Global Eye Genetic Consortium (GEGC). The book’s editors have been instrumental in developing strategies for discovering the new genes involved in many eye diseases. All chapters were written by leading researchers working on eye genetics from the fields of Human Genetics, Ophthalmology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Sensory Sciences, and Clinical Research. Advances in Vision Research, Volume III is a major resource for all researchers, clinicians, clinical researchers, and allied eye health professionals with an interest in eye diseases around the globe.

This book presents the state of the art in genetic eye research in Asia and the Pacific. Though there has been an explosion of information on genetic eye research in western countries, more than sixty percent of the human genes involved in eye diseases in the Asian and Pacific population remain unknown. However, new efforts and a new awareness have sparked important discussions on the subject, and new plans are being implemented to discover the genes responsible for many eye diseases in the population. The book reviews the latest findings; its content ranges from genetic aspects of human migration to DNA sequence analysis, genome-wide association analysis, and disease phenotypes. The efforts of the Asian Eye Genetic Consortium (AEGC) are also discussed. The book’s editors have been instrumental in developing strategies for discovering the new Asian genes involved in many eye diseases. All chapters were written by leading researchers working on Asian eye genetics from the fields of Human Genetics, Ophthalmology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Sensory Sciences, and Clinical Research. Advances in Vision Research, Volume I will prove to be a major resource for all researchers, clinicians, clinical researchers, and allied eye health professionals with an interest in eye diseases among the Asian population.

This book provides comprehensive information on the genetics of eye diseases affecting various parts of the eye, and addresses a range of genetic etiologies. These diseases include several hereditary disorders of anterior and posterior segment, and with different genetic etiologies. The genetics of eye diseases is a field that has been rapidly growing over the last two decades, and comprises a vast area with considerable clinical and genetic heterogeneity. The main goal of this work is to discuss the status quo of genetics for each of the disorders covered, and to highlight unusual or atypical patterns of inheritance and genetic associations. For each relevant gene, it describes the pathogenic associations and variants, genotype-phenotype correlations, and functions at the cellular and molecular level. Genetics of Eye Diseases offers a valuable reference guide for geneticists and clinicians alike, while also providing a comprehensive overview of the field for graduate and doctoral-level students. In addition to sharing essential information on the genetics of each disease, it highlights recent advances that are representative of the developments in the field as a whole.

Molecular Genetics of Inherited Eye Disorders provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of molecular genetic advances in a wide spectrum of genetic eye disorders, and forms the second volume in the Modern Genetics book series. The field has produced some dramatic and often unexpected findings in recent years ranging from the elegant unravelling of the molecular basis of colour vision defects to the subtle complexity of the retinoblastoma gene. The role of crystallins in congenital cataract and of the rhodopsin molecule in retinitis pigmentosa are discussed, illustrating the importance of the candidate gene approach to genetic eye disease. Reverse genetic approaches to the cloning of genes responsible for aniridia and choroideremia exemplify the power of the new genetic techniques and signal the start of the next experimental phase, in which the functional characterization of identified genes begins.

Over the past decade advances in molecular biology have transformed our understanding of the genetic basis of a broad range of ophthalmic conditions and of the disease processes that underlie them. Genetics for Ophthalmologists gives a concise summary of the current clinical understanding of genetic ophthalmology and how it may be applied to diagnosis management and counseling of patients with inherited eye diseases. In addition the book gives detailed information of recent advances in genetic eye disease and how disease pathophysiology correlates with this molecular genetic information. Genetics for Ophthalmologists is aimed at general and specialist ophthalmologists, at trainees at all levels as well as at clinical and molecular geneticists interested in the genetics of eye disease.
