Ophthalmic DOPS and OSATS: The Handbook for Work-Based Assessments

‘Ophthalmology departments are among the busiest in any hospital, meaning that opportunities for direct teaching are limited, and the demand for juniors to undertake procedures is significant.’ From the Preface Ophthalmology is a challenging and rewarding specialty that is underrepresented in undergraduate education and, consequently, trainee ophthalmologists often begin training with little or no experience in the specific skills required. This book provides the trainee ophthalmologist with a guide to a multitude of practical skills which form The Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ syllabus. Using the College curriculum as a structure for the techniques discussed, each topic maintains a consistent format throughout, with RCOphth codes and target years of achievement, an aim, a list of equipment required and a methodical outline of the procedure. In some cases, discussion of the basic principles underlying an investigative technique, or the physiology of a particular sign, is included. Line drawings illustrate techniques where necessary, and vital ‘pearls’ of information are included as top tips for success. The appendix contains a concise summary of 50 major ophthalmic studies and papers, together with a summary of RCOphth and NICE guidance pertinent to ophthalmology. A much-needed addition to support the trainee’s learning environment, Ophthalmic DOPS and OSATS: the handbook for work-based assessments serves as a vital reference as skills are learned and refined either in the workplace or during FRCOphth examination preparation. ‘There are 179 competency requirements of the ophthalmology trainee embedded in The Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ training curriculum. This may seem daunting to the trainee with little experience in ophthalmology in a learning environment that has hitherto been reliant on an apprenticeship model of experiential learning.’ Patrick Watts in the Foreword

Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

High-speed anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) offers a non-contact method for high resolution cross-sectional and three-dimensional imaging of the cornea and the anterior segment of the eye. As the first text completely devoted to this topic, Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography comprehensively explains both the scientific principles and the clinical applications of this exciting and advancing technology.

Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography enhances surgical planning and postoperative care for a variety of anterior segment applications by expertly explaining how abnormalities in the anterior chamber angle, cornea, iris, and lens can be identified and evaluated using the Visante OCT™.

Inside Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography, Dr. Roger Steinert and Dr. David Huang, along with 22 of the field’s leading professionals, provide a wealth of useful clinical and physiological material about this new diagnostic imaging technique. Valuable images are included to assist in the pre- and postoperative assessment of various anterior segment disorders. Additionally, this unique resource contains detailed information on biometric measurements to enhance diagnostic capability.

On the leading edge of anterior segment imaging:
• Mapping of corneal thickness and keratoconus evaluation
• Measurement of LASIK flap and stromal bed thickness
• Visualization and measurement of anterior chamber angle and diagnosis of narrow angle glaucoma
• Measuring the dimensions of the anterior chamber and assessing the fit of intraocular lens implants
• Visualizing and measuring the results of corneal implants and lamellar procedures
• Imaging through corneal opacity to see internal eye structures

With the increase in popularity of anterior chamber imaging, and anterior segment OCT proving to be the best tool for high resolution biometry, Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography is a must-have for anterior segment, refractive, cornea, and glaucoma surgeons.

Eyelid Reconstruction

Skin malignancies frequently affect the periocular area, necessitating excision followed by eyelid reconstruction. Periocular trauma is also quite common, and because of the highly complex regional anatomy, requires expertise for effective reconstruction. Preparation by ophthalmic plastic surgeons prior to periorbital reconstruction is often not possible due to the unpredictability of defects left after Mohs micrographic surgeons clear tumor margins or in cases of trauma. Eyelid Reconstruction by renowned expert Suzanne Freitag and esteemed coeditors N. Grace Lee, Daniel Lefebvre, and Michael Yoon fills a void in the literature. The book provides a quick and practical ophthalmic plastic surgery guide on how to plan and perform a full spectrum of periocular reconstruction procedures.
