Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery

This book, in a concise format, explains how to perform manual small incision cataract surgery. The procedure is broken down into the chief elements and described in a step by step manner. Besides the description of the procedure, the book covers indications, necessary supplies, preparation, complication management, and postoperative care. The authors are experts from around the world, and the book will be of value both for surgeons new to this technique and for experienced surgeons who need a review of the procedure. While phacoemulsification surgery has now become the standard of care, understanding how to perform manual extracapsular cataract extractions competently is crucial when faced with complications during phacoemulsification surgery, when operating in a region of the world without access to phacoemulsification or femtosecond lasers, or when a manual approach may be a better choice for the patient.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)Therapy Scripted Protocols and Summary Sheets: Treating Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive, and Mood-Related Conditions

EMDR Therapy is a psychotherapy approach based on standard procedures and protocols. This book is an important resource that focuses on applying EMDR Therapy to anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and mood-related conditions using EMDR Therapy’s standard procedures and protocols as its template. The scripts distill the essence of the Standard EMDR Protocols and reinforce the specific parts, sequence, and language used to create an effective outcome. Also, it illustrates how clinicians are using this framework to work with a variety of conditions while maintaining the integrity of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model.

Edited by a leading EMDR scholar and practitioner, it delivers step-by-step protocols that enable beginning practitioners as well as seasoned EMDR clinicians, trainers, and consultants to enhance their expertise more quickly when treating clients or groups of clients with these conditions. These chapters reflect the expertise of EMDR clinicians treating anxiety disorders including specific phobia, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder; obsessive-compulsive disorders including body dysmorphic disorder, olfactory reference syndrome, and hoarding behaviors; and mood disorders including bipolar disorder, major depression, and postpartum depression. For each topic, the authors include relevant questions for history taking, helpful resources and explanations, frequently used negative and positive cognitions, and information on case conceptualization and treatment planning.

Consisting of past, present, and future templates, the scripts are conveniently presented in an easy-to-use, manual-style format that facilitates a reliable, consistent procedure. Summary sheets for each protocol support quick retrieval of essential issues and components for the clinician when putting together a treatment plan for the client. These scripted protocols and completed summary sheets can be inserted right into a client’s chart for easy documentation.

Visual Dysfunction in Diabetes: The Science of Patient Impairment and Health Care (Ophthalmology Research)

An exciting contribution to the field, Visual Dysfunction in Diabetes: The Science of Patient Impairment and Improvementis designed with two overriding objectives: to help readers understand the impact of vision impairment in people living daily with diabetes rather than considering diabetic retinopathy solely as a medical problem, and to explore what we know and don’t know about the ways diabetes affect the eye.  With the plethora of new information being generated, there are still a series of fundamental questions that must be addressed if effective treatments for diabetic retinopathy are to be found and applied.  Developed by a renowned group of authorities, Visual Dysfunction in Diabetes: The Science of Patient Impairment and Improvementoffers responses and context for a range of questions, such as: do metabolic factors beyond glucose contribute to vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy? If so, how do these lead to vision impairment?  Is diabetic retinopathy a response to systemic metabolic abnormalities or are there unique ocular problems related to insulin resistance? What is the relationship between the neural, vascular, and inflammatory abnormalities in diabetic retinopathy? Do they represent a pathological cascade induced sequentially or simultaneous responses to one or more metabolic perturbations?  The authors note that if we do not address these types of questions, it is possible that the long process of developing new therapeutic

s will target only one arm of the pathology and leave the retina open to damaging consequences of the others. State-of-the-art, comprehensive, and an invaluable addition the research and clinical literature, Visual Dysfunction in Diabetes: The Science of Patient Impairment and Improvement offers guidance and a significant step toward new scientific approaches that can lessen the devastating vision impairment associated with diabetes.

Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases

By (author): Joel S. Schuman MD, Carmen A. Puliafito MD, James G. Fujimoto PhD, Jay S Duker MD

For more than 17 years, Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases has been the classic text on this essential imaging technology.

This completely revised and updated Third Edition of Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases reflects the quickly advancing technology of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT).

Incorporated within over 600 pages are a multitude of updated features unique to this Third Edition including over 1,200 color images, state-of-the-art technology, and case presentations. These elements cohesively work together to successfully demonstrate the retina in normal and diseased states using spectral domain OCT.

Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Third Edition is written with the clinician in mind. The text’s primary objective is to illustrate the appearance of the eye in health and disease, comparing conventional clinical technologies using spectral domain OCT imaging. This method introduces the clinician to the manifestations of disease as indicated by OCT, while presenting the more familiar fundoscopic and fluorescein angiographic views side-by-side.

Drs. Joel S. Schuman, Carmen A. Puliafito, James G. Fujimoto, and Jay Duker, together with their 17 contributors, have collaborated to revise and update this best-selling comprehensive resource to reflect the current state-of-the-art technology of spectral domain OCT.

OCT applications in retinal diseases, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, anterior segment, and a description of OCT technologies are all topics extensively covered in this new Third Edition. Two appendices are included that contain a wealth of technical information for those interested in learning more about the physical principles of operation of this diagnostic imaging technology, as well as scanning and image processing protocols.

• Utilizes and interprets spectral domain OCT imaging from multiple machines.
• Over 1,200 color images.
• Strong focus on retina, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, and the anterior segments.

This classic text will provide a clinical reference for eyecare professionals, as well as retina and glaucoma specialists, that shows how to utilize and interpret OCT imaging to enhance diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, as well as to enhance therapeutic decision making and monitor the outcome of treatment. This is the go-to resource for both clinicians and scientists interested in optical imaging of the eye.
