The Glaucomas: Volume II – Open Angle Glaucoma and Angle Closure Glaucoma

41jQTJxTZyL

This second volume in a short series on the glaucomas is devoted to the two main types of the disease, open angle glaucoma and angle closure glaucoma. The contents are based on observations and experience gained during the management of more than 40,000 hospital and 7,000 private patients, with follow-up of 10 to 50 years. The book is comprehensive in scope. All aspects of diagnosis are carefully examined, surgical indications and techniques are explained, and the role of medical treatment is evaluated. Importantly, chapters are included on topics that are frequently overlooked in other books but are important to early diagnosis, such as diurnal pressure curve, HRT, and non-conventional perimetry. This volume provides a wealth of information and includes almost 1000 illustrations, the majority in color, as well as an accompanying DVD of surgical techniques. It will be an invaluable asset for all ophthalmologists.

Guide to Interpreting Spectral Domain Optical Coherence

COVER

This book guides ophthalmologists through the interpretation of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images. The first phase of analysis subdivides each image into its smallest components. The second phase combines these fine details to allow diagnosis and identification of appropriate treatment. Written by leading European experts, this manual features detailed schematic illustrations as well as actual scans, and offers information on the technical and clinical uses in the study of glaucoma and on three dimensional images.

Postgraduate Ophthalmology

COVER

This well-illustrated two volume set covers the field of ophthalmology, from the fundamentals to the most recent advances. Each section is dedicated to a specific area of the eye and covers basic techniques, investigative modules and treatment methods. With the help of 2500 images and illustrations, this book covers topics such as glaucoma, ocular oncology, nystagmus, refractive surgery, strabismus and lasers in ophthalmology. Low vision, medico-legal aspects, operating room sterilisation and ocular emergencies are also discussed.

Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements

COVER

In the past few years, there has been an explosion of eye movement research in cognitive science and neuroscience. This has been due to the availability of ‘off the shelf’ eye trackers, along with software to allow the easy acquisition and analysis of eye movement data. Accompanying this has been a realisation that eye movement data can be informative about many different aspects of perceptual and cognitive processing. Eye movements have been used to examine the visual and cognitive processes underpinning a much broader range of human activities, including, language production, dialogue, human computer interaction, driving behaviour, sporting performance, and emotional states. Finally, in the past thirty years, there have been real advances in our understanding of the neural processes that underpin eye movement behaviour.
The Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements provides the first comprehensive review of the entire field of eye movement research. In over fifty chapters, it reviews the developments that have so far taken place, the areas actively being researched, and looks at how the field is likely to devlop in the coming years. The first section considers historical and background material, before moving onto section 2 on the neural basis of eye movements. The third and fourth sections looks at visual cognition and eye movements and eye movement pathology and development. The final sections consider eye movements and reading and language processing and eye movements.
Bringing together cutting edge research from and international team of leading psychologists, neuroscientists, and vision researchers, this book is the definitive reference work in this field

Atlas of Glaucoma 3rd ed.

COVER
Glaucoma affects all age groups and is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. It is imperative that practicing clinicians and surgeons recognize both primary and secondary glaucoma as well as cases of glaucoma associated with other disorders. Atlas of Glaucoma, Third Edition provides an in-depth review and analysis of the management of glaucoma and discusses research advancements that have resulted in the latest therapies.

See What’s New in the Third Edition:
Coverage of the influence of the cornea on intraocular pressure measurements and new devices designed to account for this
Inclusion of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT)
New statistical methods used for tracking rates of progression
New medications released for use since 2006
New chapter devoted to trabecular bypass surgery

This colorful atlas contains detailed captions for each illustration, making it ideal for teaching purposes as well as a reference for the practicing ophthalmologist. The third edition also features an entirely new chapter on the techniques of various trabecular bypass procedures.

Topics covered include:

Classification of glaucoma
Measurement of intraocular pressure and gonioscopy
The optic nerve
Psychophysical and electrophysiological testing in glaucoma
Primary open-angle, secondary open-angle, and angle closure glaucomas
Ocular blood flow and metabolism
Medical therapy and surgical treatments
Aqueous shunts
Combined cataract and glaucoma surgery
Treatment of developmental glaucoma

Glaucoma encompasses a wide variety of clinical entities, clinical findings, diagnostic techniques, and treatment options. This book presents a vast assemblage of insight from internationally recognized experts.

Clinical En Face OCT Atlas

COVER

This atlas examines developments in clinical en face imaging, comparing methods and devices and evaluating the most clinically efficient techniques. Divided into three sections, the first part introduces the principles of OCT (optical coherence tomography) and the anatomy and histology of the retina and surrounding area. The second section discusses en face OCT in diagnosing and treating different ocular diseases and disorders. More than 1000 pathological images obtained using different OCT devices are included. The final part describes future developments in the technological and scientific aspects of OCT and their clinical applications. Key points *Evaluates clinical en face OCT techniques for numerous ocular diseases and disorders *Each case includes pathological images from different devices for comparison *Internationally-recognised European and US author and editor team

Keratoconus When, Why and Why Not: A Step-by-Step Systematic Approach

COVER

Keratoconus is degeneration of the structure of the cornea. The cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye. The shape of the cornea slowly changes from the normal round shape to a cone shape. (PubMed Health). This book is a step by step guide to the diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus. Beginning with an introduction to the classification and patterns of the disease, the following section examines treatment options, discussing in detail when to treat, why to use a particular treatment modality and why not to use other treatment options. Nine case studies are presented, as well as a final self assessment section allowing students to test their knowledge. Key Features * Step by step guide to the diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus * Clear discussion on which treatments to use and why * Nine case studies presented with detailed explanations * Includes self assessment section * More than 200 colour images and illustrations
