The Ophthalmology Examinations Review (Second Edition)

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on The Ophthalmology Examinations Review (Second Edition)
Jun 202018
 

Many new treatments and diagnostic procedures in ophthalmology have been refined or newly developed during the past four years, a new edition reflecting these changes is most timely.

The scope and aim of the book will be consistent with the first edition, which provides a broad review of the specialist ophthalmology examinations for final year ophthalmology residents and trainees. The book deals primarily with key facts and topics that are important from the examination perspective. Only information and facts that are considered relevant and critical to the exams are covered, with topics that may be of scientific interest, but are not commonly tested in exams, specifically left out. Time-challenged readers will also benefit from the knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks that are now organized and synthesized in this book. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, enough information is contained within the book to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.

The style and format of this book is intentionally didactic, with questions and short answers. The answer includes a "model opening statement," followed first by a classification system to aid organization of facts, and then the core explanation in concise short notes. "Exam Tips" are inserted to provide an insight into techniques of answering different types of questions and when appropriate, a "Clinical Approach" section is also included.

In the new edition, topics such as new understanding of disease mechanisms (e.g., genetics of eye diseases), new investigations (e.g., OCT), and novel procedures and treatment (e.g., the use of antivascular endothelial growth factors, new refractive surgical techniques) are covered.

This book will be a valuable guide to the final year ophthalmology residents and trainees taking the specialist ophthalmology examinations

Editorial Reviews

Review

“It is an excellent review for the ophthalmologist studying for the board examinations. It is well organized, simple and direct … and should be used by clinicians in training long before the eleventh hour.”
— Archives of Ophthalmology

“… it is ideally suited for any candidate taking basic qualifying tests in ophthalmology anywhere in the English speaking world … It is quite a remarkable and comprehensive fund of information and must surely contain every question ever put by any examiner in an oral/viva examination and also covers all the published syllabuses both for basic sciences and clinical components of our examinations … Trainees, therefore, might consider the use of this book as a reasonable guarantee for success in the examinations mentioned provided preliminary reading has been completed. It could also be of assistance to harassed examiners in drawing up suitable lists of topics for viva examinations and, in addition, assist them in the difficult task of setting and checking MCQ papers.”— The Surgeon

“Unique in its format, this review is both intentionally didactic and repetitive and focuses on most commonly addressed examination subjects … Each topic is introduced in question format and the key learning points then summarized succinctly. This style of presentation is unique and particularly useful to those preparing for oral examinations, as it clearly breaks down general questions for easy and organized responses. Additionally, the margins contain several examination tips, which may be useful in studying for written and particularly oral examinations … Overall, the format and organization of this review book sets it apart from others. Despite potential differences between the American and British training and examinations, this review may be useful as an adjunctive study guide in preparation for the American boards or the OKAP.”— American Journal of Ophthalmology

“Granted this book is addressed primarily to those who take the British style examinations but it could be easily used by trainees in countries where exams are slightly different … Overall, Dr Wong includes an enormous amount of information in just over 400 pages, and has done so in an attractive way. The book is easy to read with outline forms and lots of highlighted information in box or table presentations.”— British Journal of Ophthalmology

Light and Specular Microscopy of the Cornea

 Medical Atlas, Ophthalmology  Comments Off on Light and Specular Microscopy of the Cornea
Jun 102018
 

The atlas of the Light and Specular Microscopy of the Cornea, particularly of the corneal endothelium presents photographs of healthy and pathological corneas, as well as corneas prepared for grafting. Photographs are taken from donor or patient’s corneas. The first part section of the atlas shows healthy corneas and its particular layers: the epithelium (superficial and basal cells, subepithelial nerve plexus), stroma and keratocytes, and the endothelium. Blood vessels or palisades of Vogt in limbus are shown as well. The second part section that shows corneas processed for grafting is focused focuses on the endothelial layer. Main causes of exclusion of corneas from grafting, such as the presence of dead cells, polymeghatism, pleomorphism, cornea guttata or stromal scars have been shown. The third part section of the atlas shows corneas before and after storage in tissue cultures or hypothermic conditions with the aim to assess its suitability of for tissue for grafting. The last final section contains photographs of pathological corneal explants

The new edition of this highly successful book provides a concise and practical guide to eye disease for the non-specialist, avoiding jargon and giving clear guidance on the practical management of common eye complaints.
Containing fully updated chapters, it provides the GP and optometrist with everything they need to know to enable them to deal with eye problems in primary care. The early sections describe the scope and limitations of eye care in general practice, including training, equipment and tests for ophthalmic disorders. The bulk of the text is confined to common symptoms of eye disease with particular emphasis on differential diagnosis. Later chapters describe systemic disorders with eye problems, eye trauma, surgery of the eye and the screening of asymptomatic patients. Appendices cover a formulary of ophthalmic practice, a list of suppliers, patient information, and a glossary of terms.

A conversational style is used and patients’ frequently asked questions are included. Advice is given on the use of basic equipment, on when to treat simple problems, and when to refer more complex ones. This book is well illustrated with full color photographs

Ophthalmic Care, Second Edition

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on Ophthalmic Care, Second Edition
Jun 042018
 

‘The text is clear and easy to read with numerous interspersed tables and diagrams … a useful reference’

Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology

‘An accessible and comprehensive book that fully integrates the contribution of knowledge from all ophthalmic disciplines and offers essential reading for practice’

Community Eye Health

Written by an international team of ophthalmic practitioners, this authoritative book is a vital resource not only for ophthalmic professionals, but for any healthcare professional who cares for patients with eye problems. In the ten years since the first edition was published, practice has moved on, as has the evidence for practice. This second edition draws on the passion and goodwill of the original team of authors, complemented by other colleagues, to fully revise and update the text in line with new findings, new practice and new and exciting treatments.

The book is broadly divided into three sections. The first section considers the structure and function of the eye, as well as the basic principles of ophthalmology and eye examination. The second section considers patient care in diverse settings, as well as work-related issues and patient education. It also includes two entirely new chapters on eye banking and global eye health. The third section takes a systematic approach to patient care, working from the front to the back of the eye, discussing some of the common disorders affecting each structure (such as the lens or cornea) or group of structures (such as the eyelids or lacrimal drainage system). The book concludes with a very useful glossary of ophthalmic terms.

Some aspects of practice discussed in the text are, of necessity, UK based, but these are clearly indicated and, wherever possible, principles (rather than specifics) are addressed and readers are directed to local policies and interpretations.

The first edition of this book became a core text for ophthalmic nursing, in particular, and for the education of ophthalmic nurses across the world. This new edition will provide a comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based resource for all ophthalmic healthcare professionals.

Contents include:

Physiology of vision
Optics
Pharmacology
Examination of the eye
Visual impairment
Patient education
Work and the eye
Care of the adult ophthalmic patient in an inpatient setting
The care of the child undergoing ophthalmic treatment
Developments in day care surgery for ophthalmic patients

Aniridia: Recent Developments in Scientific and Clinical Research

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on Aniridia: Recent Developments in Scientific and Clinical Research
Jun 032018
 

The aim of this book is to highlight the latest findings in Aniridia research. Aniridia, meaning “without iris”, is a rare genetic disorder affecting vision, characterized by the incomplete formation of the iris (the coloured part of the eye that surrounds the black pupil). It may also cause other segments of the eye to be under-developed such as the optic nerve and the macula (the central part of the retina). Aniridia and associated conditions affect individuals differently. So while some affected people are partially sighted or blind, others may have near normal sight. Aniridia is congenital (present at birth) and is caused by a dysfunction of the PAX6 gene, situated on the 11th chromosome that causes the premature cessation of eye development. Aniridia affects between 1:40,000 to 1:100,000 people, and affects males and females equally. People with Aniridia may also experience secondary conditions such as Photophobia, Nystagmus, Glaucoma, Cataracts and Keratopathy.

Do you have or know someone who has a vision problem? Nearly all of us can answer “yes”. The eye care business is a billion dollar industry. Americans pay high prices for eye glasses, contact lenses and surgery each year. With all the advances in eye medicine, this title is the first step in shifting some of the responsibility of eye care from health professional to individual.

What most people don’t know is integrated medicine can be an effective tool in the treatment of eye disorders such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and more. The authors use therapies such as vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal remedies, homeopathy and much more with great success. Through both alternative and conventional therapies you too can promote long term eye health and reduce the damage to your wallet.
