Manual of Oculoplasty, Orbitopathies and Dacryology

Dacryology is the study of the lacrimal (tear) system and is associated with ‘dry eye’. This book is a comprehensive guide to oculoplasty, orbitopathy and dacryology. Beginning with an introduction to the basic concepts, the following sections discuss the diagnosis and surgical management of various disorders associated with each of these subspecialties.

Short Notes and Short Cases in Ophthalmology

COVERUsing real-life cases describing patients with neuro-ophthalmic disorders, this book is a case-based teaching tool that bridges the gap between textbook information and everyday clinical practice. Each case illustrates a particular area of frequent diagnostic confusion, and highlights the specific clinical features that should point to the correct diagnosis. Focusing on errors in this way serves as motivation to the clinician to master the material so that ‘pitfalls’ can be avoided. The level of the case discussions assumes that the reader has some familiarity with basic neuroanatomy, physiology and disease process but each case discussion furnishes a brief review of such information, always with an emphasis on those features that are clinically relevant. The case-histories are succinct and amply illustrated, including motility and fundus photographs, visual fields and radiographic studies. The narrative is moved along with questions to the reader, making it easy to follow the logic of the cases.

This popular text uses double-page spreads to cover the majority of situations likely to be encountered in clinical practice. Each topic is introduced by a short case scenario, followed by a description of the appropriate clinical examination, diagnostic procedures, treatment, and prognosis. Color line drawings, diagnostic algorithms, color clinical photographs, and summary boxes bring the content to life. The 2nd Edition offers up-to-date and expanded coverage of new imaging techniques, genetics, episcleritis, scleritis, and more.
