The emergence of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in recent years has revolutionized the way we see the retina. Providing, in real time, high-resolution cross-sectional images of the macula that are very similar to obtaining in vivo histopathological specimens, OCT represents a major advance in the diagnostics of retinal disease. The excitement of working with this new tool has been dampened by the non-availability of any standard textbook on the subject and meant that every new finding on the OCT saw us rushing to the library almost on a daily basis to locate any published reports on the subject. Until now.
Using real-life cases describing patients with neuro-ophthalmic disorders, this book is a case-based teaching tool that bridges the gap between textbook information and everyday clinical practice. Each case illustrates a particular area of frequent diagnostic confusion, and highlights the specific clinical features that should point to the correct diagnosis. Focusing on errors in this way serves as motivation to the clinician to master the material so that ‘pitfalls’ can be avoided. The level of the case discussions assumes that the reader has some familiarity with basic neuroanatomy, physiology and disease process but each case discussion furnishes a brief review of such information, always with an emphasis on those features that are clinically relevant. The case-histories are succinct and amply illustrated, including motility and fundus photographs, visual fields and radiographic studies. The narrative is moved along with questions to the reader, making it easy to follow the logic of the cases.
This popular text uses double-page spreads to cover the majority of situations likely to be encountered in clinical practice. Each topic is introduced by a short case scenario, followed by a description of the appropriate clinical examination, diagnostic procedures, treatment, and prognosis. Color line drawings, diagnostic algorithms, color clinical photographs, and summary boxes bring the content to life. The 2nd Edition offers up-to-date and expanded coverage of new imaging techniques, genetics, episcleritis, scleritis, and more.
Fluorescein and Indocyanine green angiography, including the imaging of fundus autofluorescence, has been significantly improved in the last few years. The use of confocal laser technology in particular has been the most significant impro- ment: the technology is digital, fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography are seen in real time and can be used simultaneously. The clinical findings have been expanded with the addition of infrared, red-free and autofluorescence – aging. The foundations for the new fluorescence angiography atlas of Professor S. Dithmar, Heidelberg and Professor F. Holz (previously of Heidelberg) are fi- ings that have been gathered at the Heidelberg University Department of Ophthalmology with the Heidelberg Angiograph 2 (HRA 2, Heidelberg Engineering. This work documents the authors’ successful collaboration with the Heidelberg Engineering firm. This atlas clearly explains the technical fundamentals of fluorescence angi- raphy and the imaging of pathological fluorescence phenomena. A full chapter is devoted to fundus autofluorescence, particularly with regard to pathological findings in the retinal pigment epithelium. Naturally, diseases of the macula are given particular attention, especially to age-related macular degeneration and the use of Anti-VEGF therapy. The wide spectrum of macular disorders has been expanded with attention given to retinal vascular disease, inflammatory, retinal and choroidal diseases, disorders of the optic nerve, and the typical findings of intraocular tumors, including choroidal melanomas, choroidal metastases and choroidal hemangiomas.
“Small incision cataract surgery is arguably the most gratifying and efficient procedure currentely practiced in all of medicine. Moreover, it likely yields the best cost to benefit ration of all surgical procedures….I anticipate that all cataract surgeons, and in turn their patients, will benefit from this epic work, as a result we are indebted to Dr. Garg and his co-editors.”–Samuel Masket, MD, Clinical Professor, Jules Stein Institute, UCLA Center for Health Services (from the foreword)

The vitreous humour is a clear gel positioned behind the iris (coloured part) and the lens, and in front of the retina (back of the eye). Vitrectomy is the surgical removal of the vitreous humour, a procedure needed to allow ophthalmic surgeons to diagnose and treat underlying disease in the eye. Small gauge minimally invasive vitreous surgery (MIVS) allows ophthalmic surgeons to make smaller incisions, reducing the need for sutures and therefore increasing the speed of recovery. This practical book presents ophthalmic surgeons with the most recent advances in MIVS, with emphasis on the differences between gauge sizes. Beginning with an introduction to the technique and anaesthesia, the following chapters discuss MIVS for different disorders. More than 190 full colour images and illustrations, and a DVD demonstrating MIVS procedures help retinal surgeons learn how to minimalise surgical trauma by reducing the gauge size of vitrectomy instruments. Key points * Presents ophthalmic surgeons with most recent advances in minimally invasive vitreous surgery * Emphasis on differences between gauge sizes * Includes DVD demonstrating surgical procedures * Comprehensive text enhanced by more than 190 colour images and illustrations
Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. This procedure may be carried out with a Pentacam, which uses a rotating camera to create a 3D image of the anterior of the eye. This second edition has been fully updated to provide the latest developments in corneal topography and tomography using the Pentacam machine. Beginning with an introduction, the following sections describe the fundamentals of corneal topography and use of the Pentacam with different ophthalmic disorders. With nearly 250 high quality, colour images and illustrations, this concise guide is especially useful to graduate and postgraduate students in learning how to read and interpret corneal topography.
Keratoconus is degeneration of the structure of the cornea. The cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye. In keratoconus, the shape of the cornea slowly changes from round to conical (PubMed Health). In the early stages, keratoconus can be corrected with the use of lenses, but in the later stages, surgery is the only option. Holcomb C3-R(r) is a non-surgical technique that involves placing drops of the vitamin Riboflavin into the eye and using a UV light to activate them. The drops strengthen the fibres of the cornea and over time, preserve sight (American Keratoconus Association). This book is a concise guide to the technique of Holcomb C3-R(r) to treat keratoconus. Authored by the inventor of the procedure, Brian S Boxer Wachler, the text is based on his first hand clinical experience and explains the history and basic science of cross linking, the development and naming of the technique, its uses and complications, and first patient results. Key points * Concise guide to technique of Holcomb C3-R(r) to treat keratoconus * Authored by inventor of the technique and based on clinical experience * Includes more than 60 full colour images and illustrations
