Adenovirus Epithelial Keratitis and Thygeson’s Superficial Punctate Keratitis: In Vivo Morphology in the Human Cornea

Helena M. Tabery


Despite differences in frequency, causation, and infectivity, adenovirus epithelial keratitis and Thygeson’s superficial punctate keratitis (TSPK) are often confused in clinical practice owing to the similarity between adenovirus epithelial infiltrates and ‘coarse’ epithelial TSPK lesions. This book presents the morphological features, dynamics, and sequelae of adenovirus and Thygeson’s keratitides captured at high magnification in the living human cornea. It thereby fills the existing void between conventional photographs and slit-lamp observations. Case reports demonstrate the importance of patient history in differential diagnosis, illustrate the need for familiarity with early manifestations of adenovirus infections, and assist in the diagnosis of rare variants of TSPK. Furthermore, the detailed observations on the natural course of the diseases ensure that the book will serve not only as a diagnostic tool but also as a reference when evaluating the effects of potential new treatments.

Quick Guide to the Management of Keratoconus: A Systematic Step-by-Step Approach

Mazen M. Sinjab

 

This book, designed for ophthalmologists and particularly for refractive surgeons, aims to develop practical and clinical skills in readers so that they are able to make the right decisions in managing keratoconus. There are four main chapters. The first is devoted to diagnosis and describes the clinical signs, the appearances on microscopy, and the significance of corneal hysteresis and corneal topography. Classifications and patterns of keratoconus are then presented, and the author offers his own new classification of topographic patterns. The third chapter addresses the management of the disease in detail. Both non-interventional and interventional approaches are discussed with due attention to contraindications and complications. In addition, a novel classification of management parameters is suggested, and a systematic approach to management, formulated. In the final chapter this approach is applied to nine cases that serve as clinical examples.

Ophthalmic Study Guide: for Nurses and Health Professionals

Dorothy Field (Author)


Book Description
Publication Date: November 1, 2009
Over recent years, an increasing variety of professionals have been involved with the care of ophthalmic patients. The aim underlying the changes of the last 20 years has been to provide an efficient, high quality and cost effective service to patients, which utilises the skills of the multidisciplinary ophthalmic team. This study guide cannot be considered to be a substitute for more formal, assessed education and training for role expansion, but can be considered in terms of being a ‘skills escalator’ in that those who make good use of it’s contents and use the little ‘To do’ sections to reflect on and research their practices should be able to develop their basic knowledge and skills in practice more quickly, and develop the habit of self assessment and self directed learning. The simple questions at the end of each chapter can be used for self-testing, or as a basis for questions that mentors could ask their students.

Genetics for Ophthalmologists: The Molecular Genetic Basis of Ophthalmic Disorders

Genetics for Ophthalmologists: The Molecular Genetic Basis of Ophthalmic Disorders
Graeme Black (Author)


Book Description
Series: Remedica Genetics | Publication Date: September 2002
Over the past decade advances in molecular biology have transformed our understanding of the genetic basis of a broad range of ophthalmic conditions and of the disease processes that underlie them. This work gives a concise summary of the current clinical understanding of genetic ophthalmology and how it may be applied to diagnosis management and counselling of patients with inherited eye diseases. In addition the book gives detailed information of recent advances in genetic eye disease and how disease pathophysiology correlates with this molecular genetic information. It is aimed at general and specialist ophthalmologists, at trainees or all levels as well as at clinical and molecular geneticists interested in the genetics of eye disease.

Retinal and Vitreoretinal Diseases and Surgery

 

As our understanding of the different retinal diseases, their management as well as new technology expands, there is critical need to put our knowledge for the benefit of the patients. The book Retinal and Vitreoretinal Diseases and Surgery, deals with the most sensitive, photoreceptive and innermost nervous tunic of the globe: the retina. It provides updated information on all clinical conditions of the retina and vitreous in a comprehensive and lucid manner, along with high quality clinical photographs and illustrations, which include relevant information. The forty-one chapters of this book were carefully selected and include areas of interest for the retinologist, general ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training. The book has been simultaneously published in English and Spanish. It covers pathophysiology, clinical signs and symptoms, investigations, differential diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and step-by-step modern vitreoretinal surgical techniques.
