Handbook of Glaucoma
by: Augusto Azuara-Blanco, Vital P Costa, Richard P Wilson,
Glaucoma is not a single disease that responds to a single treatment. A range of clinical entities is involved, including both ocular and systemic conditions. Glaucoma is difficult to diagnose, and that makes its treatment even more difficult. In this volume, the authors have written a clear and concise guide to the effective diagnosis and treatment of this not-so-simple disease. Beginning with a full classification and profile and ending with an overview of treatment options, Handbook of Glaucoma distills much of the medical literature into one straightforward reference. This guide is ideal for ophthalmologists, eye surgeons, geriatricians and any clinician attending to glaucoma patients.
Dynamic Ophthalmic Ultrasonography: A Video Atlas for Ophthalmologists and Imaging Technicians (The Advanced Retinal Imaging Center Collection of The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary)
By Julian Pancho S. Garcia Jr., Paul T. Finger, Richard B. Rosen
Based on material from the Advanced Retinal Imaging Center of The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, this video atlas is a dynamic presentation of various ophthalmic and orbital entities encountered in the clinical setting. Dynamic Ophthalmic Ultrasonography is designed for quick reference in clinics performing ultrasound of the eye. For the first time in ophthalmic literature, the book dynamically presents the basic ultrasound movements observed in the eye and orbit. It shows the usual movement of a particular tissue and the possible types of motion it could manifest in various pathologic situations.
A companion Website shows 180 B-scan ultrasound videos of typical and atypical ophthalmic tissue movements observed in various eye conditions in actual clinical cases. By watching the videos, the viewer becomes familiar with how ophthalmic tissues behave and can recognize which specific anatomic structures are involved when confronted with a similar case. This understanding of the intricacies of ophthalmic tissue dynamics enables the clinician to interpret ultrasound findings in a logical manner. Several cases are included to test the reader.
The Glaucomas: Volume I – Pediatric Glaucomas
Congenital glaucoma is a complex problem, which has been a frequent cause of blindness in the past. Over the past decades, the prognosis of congenital glaucoma has completely changed. Surgical results are very good and enable these children to integrate entirely as adults in society.
Based on the authors’ accumulated experience of more than 50 years and 860 cases operated for congenital glaucoma, this well-structured and lavishly illustrated textbook-atlas covers all aspects of congenital and infantile glaucoma, such as the original method for examining new-borns under general anaesthesia in the slit-lamp, the signs and symptoms of the disease and the differential diagnosis, the role and importance of the echometry value for early diagnosis, the gonioscopy results and the three types of congenital glaucomas (pure, refractory and late) and the type of surgery to be performed in each case with the evaluation of follow-up long-term results. Written by renowned international experts of the field, this book will become the golden standard in the field of Pediatric and Congenital Glaucomas.
Atlas of Oculofacial Reconstruction: Principles and Techniques for the Repair of Periocular Defects
By Gerald J. Harris
This full-color atlas is a practical, step-by-step guide to the reconstruction of periocular defects following tumor excision or tissue-loss trauma. The book addresses the specific anatomic concerns in each oculofacial sector with tailored surgical principles and techniques designed to improve aesthetic outcomes.
Full-color illustrations with detailed explanatory legends depict each step of each surgical technique. Flap design and mobilization are shown directly on surgical photographs, rather than in idealized drawings. The clear, accessible writing style will appeal to ophthalmic and plastic surgeons, non-ophthalmic surgeons, and non-surgical ophthalmic specialists.
Myopia: Animal Models to Clinical Trials
By Roger W. Beuerman
Myopia is the most common optical disorder in the world, and is on the rise in many countries, particularly in East Asia. The impact of myopia is evident as the driving force in the development of refractive surgery and of the spectacle and contact lens industries. While myopia is often seen as a childhood disease that involves complex genetic-environmental factors, it is also a major cause of adult blindness. In Singapore (where myopia has reached one of the highest rates in the world) as well as in Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong, affected patients have greater severity of myopia, leading to additional secondary complications such as glaucoma.
This book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of myopia. It is aimed at ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, scientists and pharmaceutical companies. The topics are uniquely treated in that they cover research at the laboratory bench as well as clinical applications and population-based approaches in epidemiology.
