Diabetes mellitus is a complex, multifactorial disease that is often associated with progressive retinopathy and visual loss. In this book, Drs. Scott, Flynn, and Smiddy have compiled the current basic science and clinical information from leading authorities on diabetic eye disease. They have also included the results of clinical trials in patients with diabetic retinopathy, as well as the guidelines established by collaborative studies and the concepts of disease mechanisms and clinical management that have subsequently evolved from those guidelines. This monograph will provide practitioners with a concise, up-to-date, practical reference for the diagnosis and management of ocular disease in diabetic patients.

Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for common clinical dilemmas? Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions most commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between glaucoma specialists.
Dr. Dale K. Heuer, and associate editors Dr. Steven J. Gedde and Dr. Richard Lewis, have designed this unique reference in which top glaucoma specialists offer expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with the day-to-day diagnosis and care of glaucoma patients.

Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert pearls that even high-volume glaucoma specialists will appreciate. General practitioners, residents, fellows, and optometrists alike will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within.
Some of the questions that are answered: • Which imagining device should I use in my practice? • How should I set a target intraocular pressure? • What is “maximum medical therapy” for glaucoma now? • Which glaucoma medications may be used safely during pregnancy? In children? • Is selective laser trabeculoplasty better than argon or diode laser trabeculoplasty? • Which of the new incisional surgical alternatives to trabeculectomy should I consider for my patients? In what clinical settings should I consider them? • In which patients with glaucoma and cataract should I perform a combined procedure? Cataract surgery alone? Trabeculectomy first?

Visual Fields: Examination and Interpretation, 3rd edition contains revisions and updates of earlier material as well as a discussion of newer techniques for assessing visual field disorders. The book begins with a short history of the field of perimetry and goes on to present basic clinical aspects of examination and diagnosis of visual field defects in the optic nerve, optic disc, chorioretina, optic chiasm, optic tract, lateral geniculate field bodies, and the calcarine complex. Additional aspects of visual field examination are explored including those of monocular, binocular, and junctional field defects, congruity vs. incongruity, macular sparing vs. macular splitting, density, wedge-shaped homonymous field loss, and monocular temporal crescent. Various new techniques of automated perimetry are also considered including SITA, FASTPAC, and SWAP. This volume provides a very useful overview of the techniques of visual field examination in a number of eye disorders and will be of interest to all ophthalmologists, neuro-opthalmologists, retina specialists, and optometrists.
