Diagnostic Procedures in Ophthalmology

by HV Nema, Nitin Nema

The book covers most of the basic and well-established diagnostic procedures in ophthalmology. It starts with visual acuity and describes color vision and color blindness, slit-lamp examination, tonometry, gonioscopy, evaluation of optic nerve head in glaucoma, perimetry, ophthalmoscopy and ophthalmic photography. Most of these procedures are considered basic and carried out routinely but to obtain an evidence-based diagnosis, a correct procedure for the examination must be followed. A new chapter on Confocal Microscopy is included. Confocal microscopy, a noninvasive procedure, allows in vivo observation of normal and pathogenic corneal microstructure at a cellular level. It can identify subclinical corneal abnormalities. A number of new chapters such as: Retinopathy of Prematurity, Localization of Intraocular Foreign Body, Comitant Strabismus, Incomitant Strabismus, Dry Eye, Epiphora, Proptosis and Neurological Disorders of Pupil have been added in the second edition of the book. Most of the contributors who have vast experience in their respective fields have written chapters for this book. To make the reader familiar, they have not only described diagnostic procedures but also given characteristic findings of eye disorders with the help of illustrations. The book should be of great help to the practicing ophthalmologists and clinical residents providing a practical resource to investigative procedures in ophthalmology.
