The Retina: A Guide to Self-Assessment

by Melvin J. Gouder

This book covers the entire spectrum of retinology from basic genetics to clinical assessment, from common diseases to rare syndromes, and from simple medical treatment to complex vitreoretinal surgical procedures. The reader will learn about the retina in its entirety, which is fundamental to ophthalmic expertise. To aid in self-assessment, the book includes multiple-choice questions in exam format, which include detailed answers and are supplemented with diagrams and photos (from the author’s personal library of patient photos). The book is intended for those sitting for the popular post-graduate degrees in ophthalmology in Europe (EBO), the traditional Royal College of Ophthalmology exams (RCO) and their Asian counterparts, including the ICO. It will also be of interest to qualified ophthalmic surgeons/ophthalmologists and can be used to self-assess readers’ current state of knowledge.

The Uveitis Atlas

by Vishali Gupta (Editor)

Uveitis comprises a group of intraocular diseases that poses a diagnostic challenge to the ophthalmologists of all subspecialties, including uveitis specialists. The morphological expression of the diseases may be characteristic at times, but it is challenging to detect and recognize subtle clinical clues that might indicate towards a particular etiology: infectious, non-infectious or masquerade. Ancillary investigations including fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, auto fluorescence imaging, ultrasound, ultrasound biomicroscopy, laser flaremeter and optical coherence tomography play a crucial role in reaching a specific diagnosis and require proper interpretation in context of each disease variety. In addition, the radiological imaging, systemic work-up and laboratory investigations aid in establishing the diagnosis. This is a first comprehensive atlas that compiles these varied findings in each type of uveitis. It describes all uveitic entities employing the aid of slit lamp and anterior segment photographs, fundus photographs, ancillary investigations where applicable and relevant laboratory and radiologic investigations. The case-based format sets out the context clearly to match the diagnostic findings with the treatment plan. Covered in 136 chapters and more than 1000 images, this atlas is an essential reference guide for all uveitis specialists and general ophthalmologists. Regular updates on new insights, techniques and treatments meet the point-of-need requirements of the busy readers looking for most current information.
