Uveitis is a potentially blinding inflammatory disease that presents one of the most serious and complicated therapeutic challenges in the field of ophthalmology. During the last decade, the therapeutic armamentarium of the uveitis specialist has enormously expanded. Novel biologic agents and intraocular therapy are becoming a valuable alternative treatment to control ocular inflammatory diseases and inflammatory macular edema — the most important cause of visual loss in patients with uveitis. This publication is designed to bring together the principles of therapy of patients with noninfectious uveitis and the most recent therapeutic options available. General ophthalmologists, uveitis specialists as well as residents will find it a useful update on the latest innovative treatment options for patients with noninfectious uveitis.

Digital Teleretinal Screening: Teleophthalmology in Practice

Authors:    Kanagasingam Yogesan & Leonard Goldschmidt & Jorge Cuadros

Digital retinal imaging performed by primary care providers and nurses, followed by remote image interpretation (teleretinal imaging), is rapidly acquiring a crucial role in many parts of the world as it permits the detection of major diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, in patients who would otherwise be beyond the reach of a trained ophthalmologist. In this book, experts from around the world describe how digital teleretinal screening can be set up and optimally utilized. Technical issues are discussed, and the appropriate use of screening for different diseases and in different age groups is explained. The major part of the book draws upon the clinical experience of leading practitioners in a wide range of teleretinal applications. The result is a comprehensive source of high-quality information for clinicians and other health professionals who are involved in eye care delivery, so that they can assess how teleretinal screening might be applied to their working practice.
