Advances in Vision Research, Volume II (Springer) covers “Genetic Eye Research in Asia and the Pacific”. Edited by Gyan Prakesh and Takeshi Iwata, this text, part of the “Essentials in Ophthalmology” series, is a resource on the current state of research and insight into a historically under-investigated population that also happens to be the largest in the world.

Examples of topics covered are “Stargardt Disease in Asian Populations”, “Genomic Approaches to Eye Diseases: An Asian Perspective” and “Myopia Genes in Asians”.

This book is intended for researchers, epidemiologists with interest in genetic disease and ophthalmologists with a particular focus on genetic eye disease who also see a significant number of patients of Asian or Pacific origin.
