Diabetes mellitus is a complex, multifactorial disease that is often associated with progressive retinopathy and visual loss. In this book, Drs. Scott, Flynn, and Smiddy have compiled the current basic science and clinical information from leading authorities on diabetic eye disease. They have also included the results of clinical trials in patients with diabetic retinopathy, as well as the guidelines established by collaborative studies and the concepts of disease mechanisms and clinical management that have subsequently evolved from those guidelines. This monograph will provide practitioners with a concise, up-to-date, practical reference for the diagnosis and management of ocular disease in diabetic patients.
This book discusses current controversial topics and therapeutic strategies in the treatment of malignant and benign ocular diseases, with special emphasis on ocular tumors. Written by leading specialists, the articles highlight the latest developments in the diagnosis and therapy of retinoblastomas, uveal melanomas and malignant lymphomas. Further contributions include such topics as the optimization of dosimetry and design of radioactive eye plaques, the effects and side-effects of radiotherapy of age-related macular degeneration, and new approaches for perioperative organ-preserving brachytherapy for orbital tumors. Readers will be particularly interested in the discussion of possible side-effects of photon and proton beam radiotherapy of the eye and their minimization. Extensive data from clinical studies evaluating radiotherapy in the management of endocrine orbitopathy are also provided. The final part is dedicated to radiotherapy of benign ocular diseases such as pterygium or choroidal and retinal hemangiomas. Compiling the most up-to-date and comprehensive information on ocular radiotherapy currently available and offering an interdisciplinary perspective, this book will be appreciated by ophthalmologists, radiotherapists and oncologists.
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.
Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is a completely revised and updated version of this classic text. Incorporated within over 700 pages are a multitude of updated features unique to this edition including over 1,600 color images, state-of-the-art technology, and case presentations. These elements cohesively work together to successfully demonstrate the retina in normal and diseased states using the innovative Stratus OCTTM. Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is written with the clinician in mind. The text's primary objective is to illustrate the appearance of the eye in health and disease, comparing conventional clinical technologies using OCT imaging. This method introduces the clinician to the manifestations of disease as elucidated by OCT, while presenting the more familiar fundoscopic and fluorescein angiographic appearance side-by-side. Drs. Joel S. Schuman, Carmen A. Puliafito, and James G. Fujimoto, PhD together with their co-authors have collaborated to produce this comprehensive resource. OCT applications in retinal diseases, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, anterior segment and a description of OCT technologies are all topics extensively covered in this new edition. An appendix is included that contains a wealth of technical information for those interested in learning more about the principles of operation of this medical diagnostic imaging technology. This text will provide a clinical reference for the retinal and glaucoma specialist that shows how to utilize and interpret OCT imaging to enhance diagnostic sensitivity and specificity as well as to enhance therapeutic decision making and monitor the outcome of treatment. Both clinicians and scientists interested in optical imaging of the eye will find this insightful text a useful reference. Features: Over 1,600 color images. Strong focus on retina, glaucoma, and the anterior segments. Utilizes and interprets OCT imaging.
