This excellently illustrated book offers detailed guidance on the differential diagnosis and therapy of detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium (PED), a frequently seen feature in various diseases of the eye. Introductory chapters discuss the anatomy, pathophysiology, and imaging of PEDs, highlighting how especially the increasing use of spectral domain OCT enables even small PEDs to be detected and followed over time. The diverse forms of PED are then described, with explanation of how they may hint at the underlying pathology or even be pathognomonic when considered in conjunction with other clinical features. New insights are provided into the characteristics of the various forms of PED, and predictors of complications – such as rip of the PED – are discussed. It is clearly explained how knowledge of the different types of PED and their underlying diseases can assist in creating an appropriate individualized follow-up and therapy scheme for each patient.
The purpose of this book is to provide an update both on the present management of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and on clinical and experimental research being done to control this disease. The book is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the current management of PVR. The Retina Society Classification of PVR is based in part on a gradation of severity from minimal to massive; therefore, this book attempts to correlate the management of PVR with its severity. The treatment of PVR of varying degrees of severity, from mild to the most severe form, is described by those authors with extensive experience with this spectrum of cases. Much progress has been made in the management of severe PVR as a result of vitreous injections, vitrectomy, periretinal membrane surgery, and retinal surgery. Authors in this book show that in mild and moderately severe PVR excellent results can be obtained with techniques that are less invasive and possibly less likely to stimulate further abnormal cellular proliferation. The new modalities for treatment of PVR are discussed by authors having extensive experience with them. The current status of pharmacological treatment and new concepts of the pathobiology of PVR are discussed. The second part of the book deals with questions frequently encountered in the management of PVR. These questions are answered by a panel of experts including Gary W. Abrams, Steven T. Charles, William H. Havener, Robert Machemer, Charles L. Schepens, and Walter H. Stern.

Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures worldwide. In traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon uses handheld instruments and a scalpel blade. This manual approach limits predictability and precision, potentially affecting visual outcomes and complication rates. Femtolaser surgery allows surgeons to access and remove a cataract with far greater accuracy, much faster and causing little or no discomfort to the patient (Omni Eye Services). This book is a comprehensive guide to femtolaser cataract surgery. Beginning with an introduction to the procedure, the following chapters examine various laser systems currently used in practice, comparing their technologies, techniques, benefits and potential complications. Written by an internationally recognised author and editor team, this invaluable manual includes more than 400 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables. Key points Complete guide to femtolaser cataract surgeryDescribes and compares different laser systems used in daily practiceInternationally recognised author and editor teamIncludes more than 400 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables
The introduction of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents has revolutionized therapy for a host of ocular diseases associated with leakage from normal blood vessels and pathologic blood vessel growth. Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology is an all-inclusive reference designed to provide detailed, up-to-date, and clinically relevant information on the current use of anti-VEGF agents in the treatment of all ocular conditions.
Drs. Jay S. Duker and Michelle C. Liang have assembled a prestigious group of contributors who pool their collective expertise in this comprehensive book. Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology is split into two sections with the first providing the history of VEGF and an overview of anti-VEGF agents and different routes of drug delivery, as it is important for eye care providers to be familiar with up-to-date aspects of the medications and indications for use.
The second section details the clinical uses of anti-VEGF agents in numerous ocular diseases, from the anterior segment including cornea and glaucoma to uveitis and various retinal and choroidal diseases. Each chapter in this section summarizes the disease process and utilizes high-quality ocular imaging to demonstrate the therapeutic use of the anti-VEGF agents.
Some of the topics covered in Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology:
- Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration
- Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinal Vein Occlusion
- Neovascular Glaucoma
- Macular Edema
- Retinopathy of Prematurity
- Corneal Disease
Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology combines the theory and applications of anti-VEGF agents, making it not only a great learning tool for beginners but also a useful reference tool for a wide range of eye care professionals including optometrists, residents, comprehensive ophthalmologists, as well as specialists in anterior segment, pediatrics, and vitreoretinal disease.
Originating from Europe’s largest and most respected eye hospital, the goal of the 1st edition of Moorfields Manual of Ophthalmology, published in 2007, was to provide a practical resource for those caring for patients with eye disease. Similarly the goal of this 2nd edition is to provide both practising and trainee ophthalmologists, and optometrists and general practitioners, with an up-to-date, user-friendly manual reflecting the latest advances in both the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease. The design has been modified to facilitate rapid access to relevant content at the point of care. The chapters are organised into the main ophthalmic subspecialties where the reader is expertly guided through examination techniques, treatment algorithms and, where appropriate, surgical procedures. The concise, highly structured text is accompanied by high quality, colour clinical images – many of which are new to this edition, particularly in the chapters covering oculoplastics and corneal disease. Thoroughly revised and updated text reflecting the latest in diagnostic techniques and treatment options in eye disease Numerous new and replacement images enhance the book’s collection of high quality colour photographs, which aid in the recognition and diagnosis of both common and rare eye conditions In depth sections on clinical examination skills essential for clinical practice and professional examinations Contributions from more than 60 ophthalmologists, including many world-renowned experts Updated guidance notes for general practitioners and optometrists, to assist in prioritising referrals
