This book is intended for eyelash technicians or anyone who offers cosmetic eye category treatments. Training in eyelash extensions often doesn't cover the large number of eye conditions that can occur. This book was written out of the need for a simple but complete overview of the human eye and its associated disease conditions. I am sure you will find it a great reference guide for conditions that may come up during a treatment consultation. The author Louise Prunty has been in the cosmetics industry for 9 years, has performed treatments, training, been the director of a wholesale eyelash company and developed a line of eyelash cosmetic products. Louise has also authored several business books, beauty books and is the editor of Lash Inc Magazine focusing on eyelash treatments.
Aging research on the human eyes crosses all areas of ophthalmology and also relies upon biological, morphological, physiological, and biochemical tools for its study. This book reviews all aspects of human eye aging. In addition to descriptions of age-related changes in almost all the structures of the human eyes, the authors also include interesting accounts of personal experiments and data. It provides an extensive panorama of what happens during aging in the eye.

A section on patient teaching provides suggestions for patient instruction and teaching. Appendix provides panic values and other valuable information in a concise and readable form. Appendix contains mailing addresses and telephone numbers to help readers provide patients, clients, or family members with agencies that may be contacted for additional information or assistance. A glossary includes the Spanish translations of each word, and defines words that are bold in the text to help readers understand the terminology used throughout the text. Content emphasizes total patient care with the inclusion of unique discussions on childhood disorders and conditions, normal pregnancy and complications, mental health disorders, and trauma or emergency care options. Student-friendly features include learning objectives, key terms with pronunciations, review questions, and case scenarios. ICD-9-CM codes are provided at a glance for each disease entry to help familiarize students with disease codes. More illustrations and photos of diseases help readers visualize pathological conditions in order to recognize them on the job. Content on cancers and autoimmune disorders has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest advances. Coverage of the most recent information includes discussions on conjoined twins, arteriovenous malformations, West Nile Virus, SARS, transient global amnesia, post partum depression, hormone replacement therapy, and personality disorders. New focus on telephone screening and patient education puts each disease into clinical context. Spanish translations of all glossary terms help practitioners communicate with Spanish-speaking patients.
Written by pioneers in the field, this groundbreaking resource gives you full details on state-of-the-art 2D and 3D eye imaging and modeling techniques that are paving the way to breakthrough clinical applications in eye health. It's the first book to explore in depth a new generation of computational methods that combine image processing, simulation, and statistical discrimination tools in efforts to improve early detection of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, iridocyclitis, corneal haze, maculopathy, and other visual impairments and conditions. Supported by 250 illustrations, this comprehensive volume presents the essentials of the human eye, eye imaging systems, and imaging optics. You discover latest advances in computer-based detection and identification of various eye conditions, including issues involving automatic retinal image registration, computer-based optic disc localization, and contour detection using ellipse fitting and wavelet transform. The book explains various infra-red and bio-heat analysis methods, including 2D and 3D ocular surface temperature profiles produced by FEM simulation of the eye structure. This unique volume examines corneal surface temperature with contact lens wear, boundary element modeling of heat transfer in the eye, and the role of aqueous humor hydrodynamics in human eye heat transfer. Moreover, you find chapters that explore age factors, temperature measurement during silicone hydrogel lens wear, and IR imaging.
The human eye provides a three-dimensional moving image that is normally colored during the daytime. There are many changes in the eye and its surrounding areas due to various disorders and diseases, and aging. Eye tumor, excessive tearing, dry eyes, macular degeneration, cataract, glaucoma, etc. are some of the common eye diseases caused by various internal and external factors. The aging process is one of the prominent reasons for certain changes in the eye. The most functionally important changes in the non-diseased eye are the loss of accommodation or focusing capability and a reduction in pupil size. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to ophthalmology have been included in this book. It presents the complex aspects of diagnosis and management of eye diseases in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. The readers would gain knowledge that would broaden their perspective in this field of study.
In addition to updated data from the 1998-1999 Occupational Outlook Handbook, this new edition adds key information from the very latest occupational resource--The Occupational Information Network, known as O'NET. Millions of job seekers and career changers make this reference their choice for comprehensive job information.

Technology, Design Principles and Clinical Applications
Author: Michael Kaschke
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Medical technology is a fast growing field. This new title gives a comprehensive review of modern optical technologies alongside their clinical deployment. It bridges the technology and clinical domains and will be suitable in both technical and clinical environments. It introduces and develops basic physical methods (in optics, photonics, and metrology) and their applications in the design of optical systems for use in medical technology with a special focus on ophthalmology. Medical applications described in detail demonstrate the advantage of utilizing optical-photonic methods. Exercises and solutions for each chapter help understand and apply basic principles and methods. An associated website run by the authors will include slides to facilitate the teaching/training of this material, and typical images collected by the described methods, eg videos of endoscopy or navigation, OCT, etc.
Molecular Genetics of Inherited Eye Disorders provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of molecular genetic advances in a wide spectrum of genetic eye disorders, and forms the second volume in the Modern Genetics book series. The field has produced some dramatic and often unexpected findings in recent years ranging from the elegant unravelling of the molecular basis of colour vision defects to the subtle complexity of the retinoblastoma gene. The role of crystallins in congenital cataract and of the rhodopsin molecule in retinitis pigmentosa are discussed, illustrating the importance of the candidate gene approach to genetic eye disease. Reverse genetic approaches to the cloning of genes responsible for aniridia and choroideremia exemplify the power of the new genetic techniques and signal the start of the next experimental phase, in which the functional characterization of identified genes begins.
