Mastering Endothelial Keratoplasty: DSAEK, DMEK, E-DMEK, PDEK, Air pump-assisted PDEK and others, Volume I


Volume 1 of this edited book covers basics of endothelial keratoplasty and various surgical techniques currently in use. Chapters on DSAEK, DMEK, big bubble, air pump-assisted and endoilluminator assisted DMEK/PDEK, pre-Descemet’s endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK), and Descemet’s membrane endothelial transfer (DMET) complete the topics on various surgical procedures. Complex situations and complications have been covered in volume 2 of Mastering Endothelial Keratoplasty.

Endothelial keratoplasty is a field of great interest to all corneal surgeons. It is an exciting and evolving field in corneal transplantation as the newer techniques of DSAEK, DMEK, E-DMEK and PDEK have inherent advantages that make them supersede the older techniques by far. Hence, in today’s scenario with the clearly superior results that these techniques offer, it is imperative for all corneal surgeons to learn them and know everything about managing the patient from the pre-operative to the postoperative period.

This two-volume book is a must-read for the beginner as well as the established ophthalmologist with interest in corneal transplantation. It is also a must-have for educational institutions, hospital- based libraries and for post-graduate students, fellows and residents who want to expand their knowledge.

Medical Treatment of Glaucoma :


By (author): R.N. Weinreb

Medical Treatment of Glaucoma is the topic of the seventh World Glaucoma Association Consensus. Medical treatment of glaucoma continues to be at the core of glaucoma management. Hence, the results of this report will have broad and significant impact on glaucoma research and clinical practice. The global faculty, consisting of leading authorities on the clinical and scientific aspects of medical management, met in Fort Lauderdale on May 1, 2010 to discuss the reports and refine the consensus statements.

Pearls of Glaucoma Management


If you have ever uttered the commonly expressed lament, “Glaucoma is so confusing!” then this text is for you. You will no longer be bewildered. Why practitioners may be confused about how to be of help to patients with glaucoma – in its many incarnations and reincarnations – is easily understood. The issue seems to be overwhelming when one considers that the already massive popu- tion of those with glaucoma is increasing rapidly as the world’s population increases and ages. During the past 50 years the fundamental defnition of glaucoma has changed almost 180°, and the indications for treatment have become more variable and c- troversial, some advising early therapy and others strongly cautioning against such an approach: Various diagnostic tests have come and gone and are interpreted in such different ways that there seems to be no consensus; surgical techniques come in and out of fashion in perplexing ways. There seems to be a constantly shifting, sandy foundation on which are built unsteady schools of ever-varying advice. Why prac- tioners, patients, and the public are often bewildered is understandable.

Myopia: Animal Models to Clinical Trials


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Beuerman Roger W

Myopia is the most common optical disorder in the world, and is on the rise in many countries, particularly in East Asia. The impact of myopia is evident as the driving force in the development of refractive surgery and of the spectacle and contact lens industries. While myopia is often seen as a childhood disease that involves complex genetic-environmental factors, it is also a major cause of adult blindness. In Singapore (where myopia has reached one of the highest rates in the world) as well as in Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong, affected patients have greater severity of myopia, leading to additional secondary complications such as glaucoma.

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of myopia. It is aimed at ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, scientists and pharmaceutical companies. The topics are uniquely treated in that they cover research at the laboratory bench as well as clinical applications and population-based approaches in epidemiology.

OCT in Central Nervous System Diseases: The Eye as a Window to the Brain


This book reviews recent important advances in the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in order to analyze neurodegeneration within the retina through the quantification of axonal loss. Detailed information is provided on the role of OCT as a promising tool for the evaluation of disease progression in numerous neurodegenerative disorders and as a biological marker of neuroaxonal injury. The disorders considered include multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, intracranial hypertension, Friedreich’s ataxia, schizophrenia, hereditary optic neuropathies, glaucoma, and amblyopia. Individual chapters are also devoted to OCT technique, new OCT technology in neuro-ophthalmology, OCT and pharmacological treatment, and the use of OCT in animal models. By documenting the ability of OCT to provide key information on CNS diseases, this book illustrates convincingly that the eye is indeed the “window to the brain”.
