Essentials of Neuro Ophthalmology

by P. K. Mukherjee


The purpose of this book is to make the reader at ease and confident in dealing with neuro-ophthalmic cases. Emphasis has been given to even those clinical features that seem to be too trivial but have profound significance, for instance pupillary reaction, colour sense, diminished brightness, fleeting diplopia, field changes etc.

Basic Sciences in Ophthalmology: Physics and Chemistry

Josef Flammer (Author), Maneli Mozaffarieh (Author), Hans Bebie (Author)

Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2013 | ISBN-10: 3642322603 | ISBN-13: 978-3642322600 | Edition: 2013
Basic Sciences in Ophthalmology aims to link clinical ophthalmology directly to its basic science roots. This first volume describes the physics and chemistry required for a sound understanding of modern ophthalmology. The book opens with an extensive discussion of the interaction of light with matter and the way in which light is used in ophthalmic examinations and treatments. After describing traditional methods of imaging, particular emphasis is placed on modern instrumentation such as OCT. The interaction between light and tissues in different types of laser treatment is also addressed. The chemistry section focuses on compounds particularly relevant to the eye, such as oxygen and water. The origin and consequences of oxidative stress are reviewed, and the physical behavior of chemical compounds in the eye is explained. Understanding is facilitated through the use of many examples taken from the field of ophthalmology. The text is complemented by about 450 figures.
