Rapid or even dramatic progress has been made in the field of AMD over recent years, leading to a constant revision of basic concepts. A wide range of fundus imaging modalities are now available, and this book explains the respective value of each technique. The information provided by OCT is presented logically by comparison with plain films, autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, or indocyanine green angiography. Meticulous biomicroscopic examination of macular changes and the essential value of fluorescein angiography for the detection of anatomical alterations of the macula and for precise evaluation of lesions and their course by indocyanine green angiography have naturally led the author Gabriel Coscas to analyze the new data provided by OCT.
Many ophthalmologists are in the transition from the traditional cataract surgery technique to the new minimally incision cataract surgery (MICS) technique. They are in the need of updated information on how to make this transition smoothly. In this book, world-renowned opinion leaders present up-to-date information on the new and fast-developing trends in cataract surgery. It reflects the state of the art of microincisional cataract surgery with the concept of minimizing incision. It offers all necessary information on the new technology as well as on the surgical technique. Further, it demonstrates how to handle difficult cataract cases as well as new intraocular lenses.
This text provides an orderly and logical approach to the common and less common forms of strabismus treatment to be followed as the patient is being examined. It is organized into two sections: preliminaries and diagnostic; and treatment decisions. The signs, symptoms and treatments are discussed through a brief description on the left hand page with the corresponding algorithm on the right.
This document is for those who wish to learn more about how to deal with the pediatric glaucomas and whose resources may not always be at the highest level. The authors’ aim is to inform and to encourage eye doctors to deliver the best level of care possible for these children, but we also recognize everything advised here may not be possible to accomplish in their location. Any equipment limitations should not discourage doctors from using all resources available to them, to the best of their abilities.
This classic text presents the latest information on pharmacological treatment of amblyopia, chemodenveration in place of surgery for certain types of strabismus, and much more! Over 330 illustrations show how to identify various conditions and perform the appropriate procedures.
In recent years the importance of antigen-presenting cells and their influence on the eyes has been elucidated. We have learned that nearly every structure of the eye harbors these cells, yet they differ in their activities and thus in the ways in which they protect against – or participate in – diseases of the eye. Antigen-Presenting Cells and the Eye summarizes current knowledge about ACPs in general, and their role in the eye, in particular.
Glaucoma Identification and Co-management aims to provide the background knowledge needed by optometrists embarking on co-management/shared-care of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) and to reinforce the knowledge of those already involved in co-management/shared-care practice. While the majority of readers will be registered optometrists, the book will also serve as a valuable reference work for students of optometry. Co-management/shared care schemes require a combination of skills from several disciplines – notably ophthalmology and optometry, and both professions are represented among the contributors. We have contributions from pharmacists too, who also have a key role to play in the management of patients suffering from glaucoma. Epidemiology, gonioscopy, co-management schemes and a pharmacological as well as clinical approach to the medical treatment of glaucoma are covered.
