Contemporary Perspectives on Ophthalmology is a specialty text targeting all learners of modern-day ophthalmology, particularly who are making the first steps in the discovery of this vibrant branch of medicine after completing their general medicine course as undergraduates. Contemporary Ophthalmology as a branch of medicine has grown to enormous magnitudes in the last decade. Hence the students need a comprehensive compilation detailing the updates in the subject for easy and quick perusal before their examination. The current edition is completely redesigned, and many chapters are rewritten in order to make it relevant. Some of the key features include: Wide and comprehensive coverage of updated topics in all specialties of ophthalmology. Succinct and focused format for quick reading and understanding. Key updates on evolving topics such as refractive surgery, ocular therapeutics, stem cells and corneal surgery, advances in cataract surgery, glaucoma investigations and treatment, uveal disorders, retinal surgery, oculoplastic procedures and ocular trauma. Enhanced emphasis on diagnosis of ocular disorders and investigations. A chapter on community ophthalmology. A new chapter on statistics for core understanding required for research techniques. Many illustrations and artworks for better elucidation of key concepts. Videos on selected topics.
Many new developments have taken place in ophthalmology since the publication of the last edition. It therefore became mandatory to revise and update the present edition. To accomplish this many new chapters have been added and the existing ones revised. Thoroughly revised and updated chapters Recent Advances in Lamellar Keratoplasty Principles of Molecular Genetics Intraocular Tumours Recent Advances in Oculoplastic Surgery Ophthalmic Electrodiagnostic Techniques Ultrasonography in Ophthalmology Ocular Coherence Tomography Anterior Segment Trauma Corneal Topography and Wavefront Sensing
As the first text geared specifically toward reviewing current information on ocular inflammation and uveitic disease, a resource for students, residents, fellows, and practicing clinicians, as well as general and subspecialist ophthalmologists looking to refresh their knowledge in the field. Drs. Russell Van Gelder and Anita Prasad have organized a useful Q & A format, covering both basic mechanisms of ocular inflammation and specific clinical entities. The in-depth review answers provide focus on understanding disease processes, diagnosis, and treatment.
OCT is a relatively new imaging technique that is becoming increasingly popular among ophthalmologists in both private and academic settings. Imaging has been a slow moving area in ophthalmology for some time, but now OCT is providing another, more detailed source of demonstrable change in the eye, in diagnostic, therapeutic or post-surgical setting. OCT and ultrasound both measure advancing disease states and post surgical healing. The difference is that OCT shows more subtle changes, particularly post-surgically.
These guidelines, compiled by a panel of clinicians and scientists with a high level of expertise, aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date and comprehensive instructions on the treatment and prevention of ocular inflammation. All of the recommendations are explicitly linked to supporting evidence and graded according to the strength of that evidence and the editors have made every effort to ensure that chapters are of a consistently high methodological quality. The guidelines for each treatment include dose and the frequency and mode of delivery. Significant side-effects of treatment are identified and distinguished from those of the disease in question. Suggestions are presented for the prevention both of the disease itself and of the treatment-related complications. In addition, likely future directions in treatment and prevention are identified. These guidelines will be of great practical value for all clinicians and clinical scientists with an interest in the subject.

There have been major advancements in the pharmacologic treatment of eye diseases over the past decade. With newly discovered disease targets and novel approaches to deliver therapeutic compounds to the eye, patients are seeing improved outcomes. Not only are there better treatments for diseases where treatments existed, we now have effective therapy for previously untreatable and blinding eye disorders. This volume will cover the pharmacologic treatment of eye diseases from the front of the eye including eyelids, conjunctiva and cornea all the way back to the retina and optic nerve. The first section of the volume reviews general principles of ocular pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmaceutical sciences, and drug delivery. In addition, the volume provides an up to date guide to the pharmacologic approach to the key eye diseases that threaten sight or ocular function.
This book will focus for the first time on how to avoid complications of uveitis, or how to deal with them either surgically or medically. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that all other books available on the subject of uveitis concentrate on pathogenesis, natural course, diagnosis and treatment of the uveitic entity itself, barely touching complications arising from inflammation. This book will be divided in chapters, each of them concentrating on a particular portion of the eye, from front to back, and how it can get affected by complications from inflammation. Inflammatory diseases causing these complications will be just superficially touched, the main focus will be the pathogenesis of the actual complication, prevention and treatment. Every chapter will be introduced by a section by a uveitis specialist on how inflammation can cause that particular complication, and how we can avoid it. Then a specialist in the sector (cornea surgeon, glaucoma surgeon, etc) will describe management of the complication. This multi-disciplinary approach to complications of uveitis will provide to the readers the tools to prevent them, or to correctly manage the. It will be a book mainly directed to uveitis specialist but that could also interest other specialists.
