Geriatric Ophthalmology: A Competency-based Approach

Andrew G. Lee (Editor), Hilary A. Beaver (Editor)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41zDdiUYI9L.jpg
Product Description
As the Baby Boom generation ages, an increased need for geriatric specialty care becomes particularly important. This shift will especially affect ophthalmology, as the occurrence of common visual disorders such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy increases with age. This book anticipates this pending and inevitable demographic shift and fulfills the need for a practical, “bread-and-butter” approach to Geriatric Ophthalmology.

Colour Atlas of Clinical Gonioscopy 1st.

Wallace L.M. Alward (Author), Frederick C Blodi (Foreword)

Product Description
Gonioscopy is a technique of examination of the iridocorneal angle of the eye. It is a critical portion of the examination of all patients, particularly those with glaucoma. It is a part of the eye examination which is extremely difficult for trainees to learn. Some older practitioners have never become expert in gonioscopic techniques. This atlas presents all aspects of the technique from the basic sciences through the principles, examination techniques and interpretation of findings.

Ischemic Optic Neuropathies

Sohan Singh Hayreh

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41Ek0LRa24L.jpg
Product Description
Ischemic optic neuropathy, often referred to as a stroke of the optic nerve, is one of the major causes of visual impairment or loss of vision. Yet it is a highly controversial and confusing subject because of the general lack of in-depth scientific understanding of the subject. In this book the leading authority in the field describes in detail the current knowledge about the different forms of the often devastating disease. Insights into the underlying pathogenesis and peculiar clinical features are given, leading the reader to the most appropriate way of management. This information will help any physician dealing with patients who suffer from sudden loss of vision.

The Retina and its Disorders

Joseph Besharse (Editor), Dean Bok (Editor)

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/519GuA1ExlL.jpg
Product Description

This selection of articles from the Encyclopedia of the Eye covering retina, optics/optic nerve and comparative topics constitutes the first reference for scientists, post docs, and graduate students with an interest beyond standard textbook materials. It covers the full spectrum of research on the retina – from the basic biochemistry of how nerve cells are created to information on neurotransmitters, comparisons of the structure and neuroscience of peripheral vision systems in different species, and all the way through to injury repair and other clinical applications.

*The first single volume to integrate comparative studies into a comprehensive resource on the neuroscience of the retina

*Chapters are carefully selected from the Encyclopedia of the Eye by one of the world’s leading vision researchers

*The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OST3Kn%2BxL.jpg
Product Description

This selection of articles from the Encyclopedia of the Eye is the first single-volume overview presenting articles on the function, biology, physiology, and pathology of the structures of the ocular periphery, as well as the related disorders and their treatment. The peripheral structures are implicated in a number of important diseases, including optic neuritis, thyroid eye disease, and strabismus. The volume offers a basic science background of these topics rather than a strictly clinical focus.

Emergencies in Neuro-Ophthalmology: A Case Based Approach

Andrew G. Lee (Author), Paul W. Brazis (Author), Mansoor Mughal (Author), Fabiana Policeni (Author)

cover
Product Description
The management of emergent neuro-ophthalmic conditions can be a life-saving encounter for the general ophthalmologist. This book covers life-threatening scenarios that a general ophthalmologist might encounter, and is designed to help the ophthalmologist make emergency triage decisions for initial evaluation and treatment of potentially vision- or life-threatening conditions. This book is case based, and provides the reader with the invaluable expert views of two neuro-ophthalmologists. One, Dr Lee is an ophthalmology-based neuro-ophthalmologist and the other, Dr Brazis is a neurology-based neuro-ophthalmologist. Dr Mughal and Dr Policeni collected and collated the case vignettes during their fellowship with Dr Lee at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

This textbook provides a concise, easy to read, and practical guide to the emergent evaluation of neuro-ophthalmic conditions. It is designed to be a quick read and not to be all-inclusive or comprehensive. The reader is directed to longer and more comprehensive neuro-ophthalmic texts for this information. It is also not the aim of the book to provide information on anatomy, pharmacology, physiology, or other basic mechanisms of disease. Instead, this text is meant to be a quick reference and resource for the clinician in the emergency room or in the clinic facing a potentially vision- or life-threatening emergency and to provide immediate guidance for potentially “high stakes” decision making. The case vignettes are based upon real clinical cases but the clinical details of each case have been modified for teaching purposes and represent composite rather than individual histories.
