Thoroughly revised and updated–and now in full color for the first time–this manual is a complete, current, and convenient “how-to” guide to fitting, evaluating, and troubleshooting contact lenses, particularly specialty contact lens designs. The book is the perfect quick reference to consult during a patient’s examination and a user-friendly study guide for boards. Each chapter includes clinical cases, nomograms, and a proficiency checklist. This edition has over 200 new illustrations, including 169 full-color photographs. Coverage includes new information on silicone hydrogels, disposable lenses, and new lens designs, materials, and care systems, as well as significant updates on clinical topics such as orthokeratology and bifocals. The contributors represent sixteen schools and colleges of optometry
During recent years, FAF (Fundus autofluorescence) imaging has been shown to be useful in various retinal diseases with regard to diagnostics, documentation of changes, identification of disease progression, and monitoring of novel therapies. Hereby, FAF imaging gives additional information above and beyond conventional imaging tools.
This unique atlas provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of FAF imaging in retinal diseases. It also compares FAF findings with other imaging techniques such as
fundus photograph, fluorescein- and ICG angiography as well as optical coherence tomography.
General ophthalmologists as well as retina specialists will find this a very useful guide which illustrates typical FAF characteristics of various retinal diseases.
The broad field of neuro-ophthalmology encompasses lesions of both the afferent and efferent pathways, which can result from various etiologies: tumoral, paraneoplastic, vascular, inflammatory, infectious, or hereditary, just to name a few.
This volume of Essentials in Ophthalmology is dedicated to the review of new developments in neuro-ophthalmology, including those in diagnosis, physiology, investigations or therapeutic options. It is divided into six parts, designed to provide the clinician with a summary of some of the newest data regarding: Diseases of the optic nerve, unusual retinopathies, new methods of investigations of the retina, optic nerve, and visual brain, neuro-ophthalmic implications of some systemic disorders, oculomotility, visual rehabilitation.
This up-to-date, concise, and practical book will help the clinician understand the unusual diseases of certain patients with neuro-ophthalmic disorders.
Many minimally invasive procedures have been developed over the past decades, leading to a great improvement in eye surgery. This unique textbook and reference guide provides a complete up-to-date overview of minimally invasive surgical techniques in ophthalmology. Lavishly illustrated with superb illustrations and video clips, it presents the state of the art of minimally invasive ophthalmic procedures. It serves as an invaluable resource for all ophthalmic surgeons with widely varying levels of experience, from the resident to the experienced surgeon.
Univ. of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark. Presents case studies addressing all aspects of cosmetic eyelid surgery, from preoperative evaluation and surgical technique to management of complications. Features more than 300 full-color illustrations and discussions of alternative approaches
This thorough overview contains comprehensive coverage of clinical contact lens practice for those involved in contact lens prescribing, fitting, and care. Designed for easy access, it presents essential information in a concise format that highlights key, need-to-know points.
From the introduction: “The purpose of the present book is to bring together in a coherent manner new knowledge gained from research over the past 50 years on the physiology of intraocular pressure, ocular blood flow and the relation of these fundamental parameters to early diagnosis and therapy of vascular diseases of the eye and brain. It will be evident to the reader that the presentation is influenced significantly by the author’s own research. My justification is that by good fortune I have spent many years with superb collaboration helping solve outstanding problems of ocular physiology. This knowledge has increased understanding of the parameters underlying the onset of ischemia and the loss of autoregulation associated with common ocular disease and thereby led to new methods of diagnosis and therapy.”
This book takes the reader through the entire research process: choosing a question, designing a study, collecting the data, using univariate, bivariate and multivariable analysis, and publishing the results. It does so by using plain language rather than complex derivations and mathematical formulas. It focuses on the nuts and bolts of performing research by asking and answering the most basic questions about doing research studies. Making good use of numerous tables, graphs and tips, this book helps to demystify the process. A generous number of up-to-date examples from the clinical literature give an illustrated and practical account of how to use multivariable analysis.
