Contact Lens Complications
editore: Saunders (W.B.) Co Ltd
"Contact Lens Complications" has become established as the definitive guide to the ocular response to contact lens wear. In this highly anticipated third edition, award-winning contact lens author, clinician and researcher, Professor Nathan Efron, presents a thoroughly revised and expanded, clinician-friendly account of how to identify, understand and manage contact lens complications in modern-day practice. Professor Efron is renowned for his ability to distil often complex principles of ocular physiology and pathology into an easy-to-read, highly structured format. The subject matter is systematically laid out, with various complications arranged logically by tissue structure - which is the way practitioners naturally approach clinical problems. Beautifully presented and lavishly illustrated with full-colour schematic diagrams and clinical pictures, this book can serve as both a practical chair-side manual and authoritative reference. All of the material is organised by the way you see it in the clinic - by slit-lamp appearance and tissue pathologies. As such, this book will be invaluable to all contact lens practitioners and students.
Byron Wood, Jorge Calzadae altri
editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins
Written by a pioneering leader in the development of vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instruments, "Vitreous Microsurgery" is a comprehensive how-to guide to all vitreoretinal procedures. This thoroughly updated Fifth Edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. This title includes more than 170 three-dimensional full-color illustrations - many by the Charles Retina Institute's resident medical artist, Byron Wood-enable surgeons to clearly visualize the techniques. This edition has new chapters on the Constellation vitrectomy system, uveitis, retinal complications of permanent keratoprosthesis, and anti-VEGF therapy. All illustrations have been updated, the majority to a 25-gauge approach instead of 20-gauge, and many new illustrations have been added. Many techniques and parameters unique to 25-gauge sutureless vitrectomy are discussed in detail. The retinopathy of prematurity chapter was completely rewritten to address new examination procedures, laser guidelines, anti-VEGF therapy, and changing, more conservative indications for surgery. The section on anesthesia for vitreoretinal surgery was completely rewritten in collaboration with Gary Fanning, MD and Jay Mattingly, MD, leading experts on this subject from an anesthesiologist's perspective. The focus of the text is on the decision making process a surgeon goes through in evaluating the best course of treatment for his/her patient undergoing vitreous surgery. This book describes in detail clinically proven methods of managing the anterior and posterior segment vitreous surgery patient in a systematic manner. The text is organized in a building block approach with general methodology preceding its application to specific disease states. This book stresses algorithms for intra-operative decision making, relying on knowledge of physical principles and performed in the order of ascending risk. A companion website included with purchase offers the fully searchable text and an online image bank.
