Stereoatlas of Ophthalmic Pathology: Anatomy and Pathology of the Peripheral Fundus


Book Description
This stereoscopic atlas is based on the slide collection of the late Professor B. Daicker, Basel, who was renowned for his merits in ophthalmopathology the world over. From the compilation of on the whole 12,000 stereoscopic slides of interesting and rare eye diseases, the editor selected 246 pairs to make them available to interested health professionals. These images can be viewed through stereo glasses (provided with the atlas) to obtain a stereoscopic depth perception.The atlas is divided into seven chapters. Each chapter starts with a short introduction, followed by the slides, which are complemented by a description of the disease and by additional images which can be found on the also included CD-ROM.The technical efforts made together with the carefully selected content make this atlas unique and indispensable. The stereoscopical visualization enhances the comprehension of eye disorders and makes it a much-welcomed tool for the differential diagnostic process.

Immune Response and the Eye



Book Description
In memory of J. Wayne Streilein, the pioneer in ocular immunology The second edition of Immune >Response and the Eye’ highlights recent insights into the >dangerous compromise’ between the immune system and the eye, which protects the eye against pathogens while limiting inflammation and immune-mediated injury to ocular tissues with little or no regenerative potential. It discusses the broad spectrum of physiological, immunological, anatomical, and biochemical adaptations that conspire to closely regulate the tone and tenor of immune responses in the eye. This volume further describes immune-mediated diseases that occur when the compromise between the immune system and the eye is breached. This breakdown in immune privilege threatens the vision of millions each year. Finally, recent advances in ocular immunology are presented, which offer potential therapeutic applications in corneal and retinal transplantation and in the management of blinding autoimmune diseases of the eye. Eye researchers, ophthalmologists and immunologists will appreciate the state-of-the-art and authoritative information presented in >Immune Response and the Eye’

Retinal Development


cover

Book Description
This advanced text takes a developmental approach to the presentation of our current understanding of how vertebrates construct a retina. Written by experts in the field, each of the seventeen chapters covers a specific step in the process, focusing on the underlying molecular, cellular, and physiological mechanisms. There is also a special section on emerging technologies, including genomics, zebrafish genetics, and stem cell biology that are starting to yield important new insights into retinal development. Primarily aimed at professionals, both biologists and clinicians working with the retina, this book provides a concise and up-to-date view of what is known about vertebrate retinal development. Since the retina is ‘an approachable part of the brain’, this book will also be attractive to all neuroscientists interested in development, as processes required to build this exquisitely organized system are ultimately relevant to all other parts of the central nervous system.

Electrophysiology of Vision: Clinical Testing and Applications


COVER
Review
…Byron Lam has succeeded with his book in presenting the whole field of clinical electrophysiology in a comprehensive way, while simultaneously his presentastion reaches the depth and intensity that is necessary for the understanding of this complex matter….Without any hesitation, this book can be recommended to anyone who is interested in electrophysiology of
vision; to ophthalmologists who are not greatly involved in the matter but want to learn more on electrophysiology than what is usually presented in textbooks on ophthalmology. Because of its completeness, the book can be also recommended to ophthalmologists or neurophysiologists already working in the field.

Book Description

Written by an experienced clinician and researcher in the field, this reference provides practical information on the clinical recording techniques, physiologic origins, and applications of electroretinogram (ERG), electro-oculogram (EOG), and visual evoked potential (VEP) tests.
