Optical Coherence Tomography in Age-Related Macular Degeneration


 

Product Description

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.

Review Questions in Ophthalmology: A Question and Answer Book


Review

Clinical and Experimental Opthalmology, Volume 34 — “The latest edition of Review Questions in Ophthalmology is a comprehensive question and answer book aimed primarily at ophthalmology registrars approaching final examinations. All the information is presented in a multiple-choice format with clear and concise explanations provided at the end of each chapter. There is an emphasis on case-based scenarios. The book is illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs including clinical photographs, imaging and fluoroscein angiograms. Overall, I found this to be a comprehensive text that would be a useful self-assessment tool for registrars approaching final examinations. The clinically orientated and pathology sections are excellent and the multiple-choice format is a nice break from reading didactic texts.”

Antigen-Presenting Cells and the Eye


Book Description:

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


Product Description

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.
