Clinical Diagnosis and Management of Ocular Trauma

Ashok Garg (Editor)

Book Description

ISBN-10: 8184484704 | ISBN-13: 978-8184484700 | Publication Date: November 30, 2008 | Edition: 1
Ocular Trauma is an important and vast subject and has assumed greater significance in this present era of Modern Technology when greater industrial and vehicular revolution have taken place. As a result of this incidence, ocular trauma has increased sharply and now it is one of the leading causes of monocular blindness specially in children and in young generation. Early and effective treatment of ocular trauma is mandatory to achieve best possible outcome thus decreasing blindness. With latest technologies, equipment and techniques, it is possible to manage traumatized eyes in a better way. Very few International quality books are available on this important subject for the Ophthalmologists.Present book has been conceived and written to provide latest uptodate information on this vast subject. 56 chapters of this book have been written by International experts on this field covering both anterior and posterior segment ocular trauma. We have tried to cover all clinical aspects of ocular trauma in both segments.

Development Of The Visual System (Developmental Neuroscience)

Anthony T. Campagnoni (Editor)

All the tissues of the eye, including the lens, the cornea, the ciliary body, the neuroretina and the retinal pigment epithelium must work in harmony for the realization of clear vision. The phenotypic emergence of each of these tissues requires intercellular communication, which is achieved through direct physical contact as well as through diffusion and reception of the molecular beacons. This volume provides an overview of the molecular and cellular biology of eye development and encompasses themes like early gene expression in the surface ectoderm and the optic cup, retinal neurogenesis, signaling molecules and axonal guidance. It presents new findings on the influence of the lens on the development of the visual system and how gene expression in the optic cup controls differentiation of the lens fiber cell while established ideas about the morphogenesis of the ciliary body are challenged. This is a valuable source of information for developmental biologists and neurobiologists.
