Clinical Ophthalmology: Medical and Surgical Approach

by Sandeep Saxena

Clinical Ophthalmology: Medical and Surgical Approach is being launched as the second edition of Clinical Practice in Ophthalmology. In this challenging intellectual environment “Clinical Ophthalmology: Medical and Surgical Approach” brings together a distinguished group of seventy-one experts and provides a comprehensive text combined with integrated visual reference, in the form of black and white and colored figures. The value of this book lays in the quality and expertise of the text chapter contributors. This text attempts to update the state-of-the-art ophthalmology in a lucid, authoritative and well-illustrated manner. Ten sections encompassing forty-four chapters provide a new insight into the subject. Twenty-one chapters cover new concepts and technological advances in the diagnosis and management of common ophthalmic disorders. Several chapters deal with advances in lens surgery, and several authorities cover new concepts in retinal disease including macular and submacular surgery. Modern concepts in corneal disease, glaucoma, oculoplastics, ocular oncology, infectious and inflammatory diseases, strabismus, trauma, and optic nerve disorders are each presented by experts in ophthalmology. As ophthalmology has become more complex, we are driven to establish higher standards of scientific proof for our treatments and simultaneously to run our practices with greater efficiency to be able to bring the best of high technology to bear on our patients’ problems while being mindful of cost. Ophthalmology is a continuously advancing field. As new technologies are being introduced at a rapid pace, the ophthalmologist must learn their intricacies as one begins to apply them to the treatment of ocular diseases. The adoption of new technology, in turn, brings with it the need to learn new skills and develop new treatment algorithms. Old concepts change and new ideas are plentiful. Everything is difficult before it becomes easy. This book is intended for the experienced ophthalmologists, postgraduates as well as those in training. It is hoped that this book will be sufficiently comprehensive to aid the ophthalmologist in making diagnosis of common ophthalmic conditions as well as in performing competent surgeries. This pragmatic book provides an understanding of ophthalmology, important to the everyday practice. This book will find a meaningful and valued place in the libraries of ophthalmologists, today and in future.
