Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade

Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade
By F. Hampton Roy, Daljit Singh, Richard J. Fugo

Product Description:

This one-of-a-kind text focuses on the uses of the Fugo blade, a battery powered, portable electrosurgical unit that produces a cool, thin plasma cloud that coats a blunt cutting filament. When activated, the plasma cuts sharper than a diamond blade by “ablation” of tissue similar to the action of a laser. This is a novel, evolving technology that has been called the “first improvement in incision since the introduction of the laser”.

The unit is FDA approved for cataract, glaucoma, iridotomy as well as dental surgery. This is the first time that the FDA has approved surgeons to drain glaucoma fluid from behind the iris, which simplifies the procedure and decreases complications. Over two dozen other uses of the Fugo blade have been identified in ophthalmology.

Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade describes and illustrates over 40 innovative procedures using this technology. Each section focuses on an anatomic area and details disorders that are treated with the use of the Fugo blade. Clear photographs, illustrations, and text explain the authors’ approach to the surgical problems.

Ophthalmologists with interest in cataract, glaucoma, refractive surgery, presbyopia reversal surgery, strabismus muscle surgery, DCR surgery, dry eye syndrome, soft tissue and plastic surgery, and retinal surgery as well as plastic surgeons and neurosurgeons will benefit from Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade.

Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment

Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment
By Ming Wang MD

Product Description:

Since the advent of keratorefractive surgery and its rising popularity, irregular astigmatism has become an increasingly important issue for ophthalmologists and optometrists. Despite the success of LASIK and PRK, there are more and more patients experiencing visual quality problems due to the non-physiological modification of the corneal structure. Among these complications, irregular astigmatism is perhaps the most difficult to treat.

The first of its kind, Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment synthesizes our knowledge and understanding of irregular astigmatism and addresses state-of-the-art technology in management and treatment. Dr. Ming Wang, assisted by Dr. Tracy Swartz, has led a team of internationally known experts in the field to produce this innovative, comprehensive, and logically presented text, which includes more than 300 illustrations to supplement the information provided.

Inside you will find:
• History and optics of regular and irregular astigmatisms
• Useful criteria for diagnosis and classification
• Current state-of-the-art technologies for treatment
• Suggestions for future direction in treatment technology

Every physician who performs keratorefractive surgery understands that in reducing a patient’s refractive error, there is a possibility of creating irreversible effects on visual quality. Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment is intended to help prevent and reduce the iatrogenic creation of irregular astigmatism, as well as provide effective treatment when postoperative complications do arise.

Complications discussed include:
• Decentered treatment
• Small optical zone
• Central island
• Oblate cornea
• Destablized cornea

In addition, this text systematically separates two distinctly different etiological groups of irregular astigmatism—that of a structurally stable cornea and that of a structurally unstable weak cornea—and comprehensively presents all treatment modalities for each.

Treatment technologies addressed include:
• UV corneal cross-linking
• Intacs intracorneal rings
• Penetrating and lamellar keratoplasties
• C-CAP
• Custom wavefront- and topography-driven treatments
• Lens surgery and toric IOL
• Conductive keratoplasty

Product Description:

As the first comprehensive reference for the eye, its support structures, diseases, and treatments, Encyclopedia of the Eye is an important resource for all visual scientists, ophthalmologists, and optometrists, as well as researchers in immunology, infectious disease, cell biology, neurobiology and related disciplines. This four-volume reference is unique in its coverage of information on all tissues important for vision, including the retina, cornea and lens. It also covers the physiological and pathophysiologic processes that affect all eye tissues.

This Encyclopedia is invaluable for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are seeking an introduction to an area of eye research. Each chapter explains the basic concepts and provides references to relevant chapters within the Encyclopedia and more detailed articles across the wider research literature. The Encyclopedia is also particularly useful for visual scientists and practitioners who are researching a new area, seeking deeper understanding of important research articles in fields adjacent to their own, or reviewing a grant outside their immediate area of expertise.

  • Includes many full colour, high quality figures and images throughout, to clearly illustrate the complex processes underlying function
  • Topics covered span the breadth of modern eye research
  • Online edition includes multimedia files
  • Each article written by a leading expert in the field
  • Each article gives a clear overview of the field with references useful for in depth reading
  • Easy to find related articles by extensive cross-referencing
  • Current information that will be systematically updated
  • Together with Darlene Dartt, Director of Scientific Affairs at Schepens Eye Institute, senior editors Reza Dana, Chair Opthalmology Harvard Medical School, and Joseph Besharse, Chair Department Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy, Medical College Wisconsin,  are leading a team of section editors and authors including the crème de la crème in eye research
