Biomedical Optics in Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery


Biomedical Optics in Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery gives an overview of current technology in biomedical optics relevant to the field of Otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery. It provides a comprehensive source of knowledge for researchers and active clinicians seeking information on the principles and practical use of novel diagnostic and therapeutic technology.

While most books focus exclusively on laser surgery, which has been largely unchanged for the past 15 years, optical diagnostics and head and neck PDT (photodynamic therapy) are usually entirely overlooked. This book contains a basic introduction into the physics of light and its propagation, lasers and low-coherent light sources, and photon-tissue interaction in relation to therapeutic and diagnostic use. The principles of various imaging techniques are also discussed ( i.e. optical coherence tomography in its variations), as well as the principles and practice of lasers for surgical use on the therapeutic side.

Clinical Medicine in Optometric Practice, 2e


By (author): Bruce Muchnick OD

This updated new edition is a practical guide to the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of systemic disorders as they relate to primary eye care. It incorporates a multidisciplinary approach, from the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, to testing and diagnosis methods, to medical and surgical management. Clinical Medicine in Optometric Practice, 2nd Edition provides the reader with the information needed to make informed decisions about patient management, such as identifying symptoms and their related disorders, and knowing when to refer patients to a medical specialist.
  • Shows how the wide range of medical conditions and their therapeutic strategies impact the delivery of eye care.
  • Familiarizes the reader with the conditions that are encountered in practice, those that may present with ocular manifestations, and those that have significant importance to medicine in general.
  • Organized in a practical, easily accessible format.
  • Uses case presentations to demonstrate clinical test interpretation, differential diagnosis, treatment, and the development of a prognosis.
  • Reflects the most current technologies in examination and testing.
  • Features all-new illustrations in full color, illustrating systemic disorders, the physical exam, videotaping, dermatological conditions, and much more.
  • Includes a new chapter on vascular disease, especially important since optometrists are sometimes the first to notice these types of changes.
  • Contains new information on cardiovascular disease and carotid disease, including the effects that stroke may have on the patient.

Visual Development


By (author): Nigel Daw

The only book on the market to cover the psychophysics, anatomy, physiology, and clinical deficits of the developing visual system in an accessible format and length. The visual system is the most commonly studied aspect of the nervous system and is the primary model for the study of both normal development and the effects of environment and sensory deprivation on development. This third edition highlights new research and features a large number of illustrations, many in color. It can be used as a supplementary text in neuroscience and ophthalmology courses. This book is a great resource for both novice and advanced researchers in the field of vision.

Macular Edema: A Practical Approach (Developments in Ophthalmology, Vol. 47)


For many years diagnosing macular edema at an early stage has been a main difficulty. Recently, multiple and remarkable advances of modern imaging technologies which allow recognition of the main etiologies, have immensely improved its diagnosis and treatment. In this volume different patterns and etiologies of macular edema are described and the importance of preserving the photoreceptors at an early stage in order to retain center visual acuity is discussed. It brings together the most recent data and evidence-based medicine, and, on the other hand, the pathophysiological basis of macular edema and the different approaches for drug delivery to the posterior segment are presented. Recommendations for treatment procedures or different therapies have been carefully analyzed and considered prior to inclusion. ‘Macular Edema – A Practical Approach’ provides the ophthalmologist with a synthesis of knowledge to diagnose, to determine etiology, and to offer the patient viable treatment options for his benefit.

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.

Practical Management of Pediatric Ocular Disorders and Strabismus: A Case-based Approach


This case-based approach to the management of pediatric eye diseases and strabismus teaches the novice, as well as the experienced surgeon, how to conceptualize and analyze surgical planning to maximize patient outcomes, allowing readers to “get inside the head of the surgeon.” Individual cases with clear instructions and an abundance of color illustrations, presented by experts in the field, teach critical information one case at a time.

Practical Management of Pediatric Ocular Disorders and Strabismus provides the key guiding principles of a traditional textbook in an easy-to-digest format. Each chapter of the text tackles a common or rare clinical situation and begins with the description of an illustrative case. The chapters are structured with sections on case description, differential diagnosis, management and outcomes with a list of possible complications and the approach to their management.

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.
