This is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis, clinical management, surgery, and postoperative management of many retinal disorders. As such it will be invaluable to both trainee and consultant ophthalmologists but will also be useful to optometrists and ophthalmic opticians who are becoming increasingly involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic disorders. The authors bring a wealth of experience in this field and present methods to help maximize the benefits of surgery.
Written by a pioneering leader in the development of vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instruments, Vitreous Microsurgery is a comprehensive how-to guide to all vitreoretinal procedures. This thoroughly updated Fifth Edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. More than 170 three-dimensional full-color illustrations—many by the Charles Retina Institute’s resident medical artist, Byron Wood—enable surgeons to clearly visualize the techniques.
This edition has new chapters on the Constellation vitrectomy system, uveitis, retinal complications of permanent keratoprosthesis, and anti-VEGF therapy. All illustrations have been updated, the majority to a 25-gauge approach instead of 20-gauge, and many new illustrations have been added. Many techniques and parameters unique to 25-gauge sutureless vitrectomy are discussed in detail. The retinopathy of prematurity chapter was completely rewritten to address new examination procedures, laser guidelines, anti-VEGF therapy, and changing, more conservative indications for surgery. The section on anesthesia for vitreoretinal surgery was completely rewritten in collaboration with Gary Fanning, MD and Jay Mattingly, MD, leading experts on this subject from an anesthesiologist’s perspective.
The focus of the text is on the decision making process a surgeon goes through in evaluating the best course of treatment for his/her patient undergoing vitreous surgery. The book describes in detail clinically proven methods of managing the anterior and posterior segment vitreous surgery patient in a systematic manner. The text is organized in a building block approach with general methodology preceding its application to specific disease states. The book stresses algorithms for intra-operative decision making, relying on knowledge of physical principles and performed in the order of ascending risk.
Color Atlas of Oculoplastic Surgery provides surgeons familiar with surgical anatomy with a broad survey of contemporary oculoplastic surgery. It illustrates and provides basic information on surgical techniques that are straightforward and reliable in managing many common oculoplastic conditions that a clinician may encounter in practice. The material is presented with precision and clarity, there is special emphasis on understanding the pathophysiologic mechanism of diseases. This integrated text, accompanied by color photographs and complementary line drawings, guides the surgeon through each procedure in a systematic fashion. Pertinent anatomy, surgical indications, important technical considerations, and complications receive appropriate emphasis in each chapter.
In order to become an ophthalmologist it is necessary to learn the skill of refraction
and retinoscopy which requires a great deal of skill and practice.
This full-colour, comprehensive revision guide has been specifically tailored for
candidates of the mandatory Refraction Certificate Examination assessed by the
Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of the retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye (eyeSmart). This new edition has been fully updated to provide clinicians and trainees with the most recent advances in OCT imaging. Beginning with an introduction to the technique for obtaining clear images, and discussion on normal anatomy, the following sections offer step by step guidance on the interpretation of OCT images and data acquired by OCT, ‘en face’ OCT and OCT angiography. Each chapter has been revised and new examination and diagnostic protocols are covered in depth. The second edition includes two new chapters on OCT Dyeless Angiography and OCT Analysis and Interpretation of Common Disorders. Highly illustrated with more than 400 clinical images and tables, this practical reference has been written by renowned experts Bruno Lumbroso and Marco Rispoli from Centro Oftalmologico Mediterraneo in Rome. Key points * Fully revised new edition providing latest advances in interpretation of OCT imaging * Includes two new chapters and more than 400 clinical images and tables
A practical handbook on the examination techniques, equipment, investigations and optical concepts which the beginning trainee in ophthalmology needs to master.
- Accessible and comprehensive guide to the practical skills and concepts with which the trainee ophthalmologist needs to be familiar
- Clear guidance on use of equipment which takes trainees considerable practice to master — e.g. slit-lamps, ophthalmoscopes, phacoemulsification machines and injectable or foldable lenses
- Covers eye examination techniques and investigations such as visual fields and fluorescein angiography
- Very clear and easily understandable section on clinical optics, explaining concepts such as ametropia
- Illustrated in colour throughout
In this thoroughly revised and updated third edition of Contact Lens Practice, award-winning author, researcher and lecturer, Professor Nathan Efron, provides a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of the scientific foundation and clinical applications of contact lens fitting. The text has been refreshed by the inclusion of ten new authors – a mixture of scientists and clinicians, all of whom are at the cutting edge of their specialty. The chapters are highly illustrated in full colour and subject matter is presented in a clear and logical format to allow the reader to quickly hone in the desired information.
This book reviews the various emerging infectious diseases that show a significant association with uveitis, describing and explaining their ocular manifestations with the aid of color illustrations. In addition, it presents brief reports of further emerging infections that are associated with uveitis in rare cases. The coverage is wide ranging, encompassing diverse emerging bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infections. Individual chapters are also devoted to important re-emergent diseases such as syphilis and tuberculosis, with the focus on new data on epidemiology, diagnosis and management.
Emerging infectious diseases are defined as “those whose incidence in humans has increased within the past two decades or threatens to increase in the near future”. Emergence may be due to the spread of a new agent, to the recognition of an infection that has been present in the population but has gone undetected, or to the realization that an established disease has an infectious origin. This book will be an invaluable source of information on all aspects of uveitis in these diseases.
