After an introduction to the anatomy of the eye and its examination, the major diseases of the eye and their management are described, followed by a problem-based introduction to clinical decision making. For this third edition, the book has been revised to take account of the many advances in this specialty including the use of monoclonal antibodies in the treatment of ‘wet’ age-related macular degeneration and new surgical techniques for corneal transplants.
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 revised to present ophthalmologists with the latest advances in the interpretation of corneal topography using the Pentacam. Beginning with discussion on various devices that may be used for corneal topography, the following sections explain accurate interpretation of the images for diagnosis and treatment. The new edition includes two new chapters on the use of Pentacam topography for refractive surgery patients. The final section presents clinical case studies to assist understanding. Key points * New edition presenting latest advances in interpretation of Pentacam topography * Includes two new chapters on Pentacam for refractive surgery patients * Features case studies to enhance understanding * Previous edition published in 2010
