Ophtho Notes: The Essential Guide (Paperback)

By (author): Randall L. Goodman

Practical and easy-to-read, this point-of-care reference provides a succinct, clinical overview of eye anatomy, disease, and treatment. Unlike many ophthalmic handbooks, OPHTHO NOTES classifies disease based upon etiology, rather than presenting signs and symptoms. This classification helps to compartmentalize diseases of the eye, and ensures quick and effortless reference.

Outstanding features:

  • Comprehensive -Thorough coverage of the entire field of ophthalmology
  • Practical - More than 1,000 mnemonics, anagrams, and other memory aids, particularly valuable to residents and fellows
  • State-of-the-art - Incorporates the latest genetic disease discoveries, refractive surgery techniques, summaries of recent major clinical trials, and more
  • Unique - Special chapter on medications, covering everything from antibacterials and corticosteroids, to miotics, mydriatics, neurologic medications, and immunosuppressives

Concise for a quick, point-of-care use during rounds, yet in-depth enough to review the entire field, this book is an essential and reliable resource for residents in ophthalmology, the perfect refresher for practicing ophthalmologists and optometrists, and a practical reference for all primary healthcare providers.

Malpractice settlements are large for undetected hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine toxicity which, if untreated, can lead to permanent loss of central vision. Knowledge of the ocular toxicity of these drugs has increased during the past fifty years as their use has expanded. Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine Retinopathy is the first single-source book on the subject and is essential for the practicing ophthalmologists, rheumatologists, dermatologists, and internists who prescribe these drugs. It covers clinical topics such as signs and symptoms of toxicity, toxicity screening, ancillary testing, to whom and why the drugs are prescribed and dosing considerations. Additionally, the book addresses practice management considerations, including coding, reimbursement and equipment costs, and the medico-legal responsibilities of the rheumatologist and of the ophthalmologist. Guidelines for the management of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine vary around the world and differences between the guidelines of the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries are identified. The book concludes with a collection of case examples illustrating common clinical scenarios and their management. This book is a “must-have” resource for physicians who use these drugs.

Since its inception two generations ago, oculoplastic surgery has constantly evolved. What was once dogma may now be passé. Procedures that were once passé may be resurrected and utilized again. Providing simplified solutions to complex problems, Atlas of Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery is a practical, problem-orientated guide to the management of common oculoplastic and orbital disorders. Based on Dr. Spoor’s thirty years of practice, the book emphasizes the more common oculoplastic conditions likely to present to a busy ophthalmologist.

The text covers upper and lower eyelid surgery and repair, orbital surgery, and the prevention and treatment of potential complications. The procedures are described with surgical photos and illustrations in a casual, didactic fashion, as a senior doctor would use instructing a resident or fellow. The book is essential reading for ophthalmologists, oculoplastic surgeons, neuro-ophthalmologists and plastic surgeons.
