This book provides emergency physicians with an easy-to-use guide for diagnosing and treating ophthalmologic conditions in the emergency department. Ophthalmologic complaints are very common, but many emergency physicians are not as confident as they would like to be when evaluating and managing these conditions. This book answers that need by giving step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose and treat common eye conditions, including glaucoma, infections, neuro-ophthalmologic conditions, and trauma. For each disorder, the book discusses presentation/symptoms, physical examination techniques, lab and imaging findings, differential diagnoses, treatment guidelines, and referral suggestions. The text is filled with images that clearly present these common ophthalmologic complaints and conditions and guide the emergency physician to an accurate and swift diagnosis. Handbook of Emergency Ophthalmology is an essential resource for emergency physicians, residents, medical students, nurses, and other healthcare workers who evaluate and manage patients with ophthalmologic conditions.

This classic introduction to ophthalmology has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the changes in practice that have taken place since it was first published in 2009. In recent years, an increasing variety of health professionals have been involved with the care of ophthalmic patients. The aim has been to provide an efficient, high-quality and cost-effective service to patients, which utilises the skills of the multidisciplinary ophthalmic team. This study guide offers both a basic introduction and a ‘skills escalator’ for nurses and other health professionals. Those who make use of its content and use the ‘To do’ panels for reflection and research will develop their knowledge and skills more quickly, and acquire good habits of self-assessment and self-directed learning. The simple questions at the end of each chapter can be used for self-testing, or as a basis for questions that mentors can ask their students. The content is deliberately restricted to ‘the basics’ in terms of the areas chosen, though they are all covered in reasonable depth. Students are encouraged to use the skills checklists at the end of the book to document their personal progress and validate their developing practice. These will provide useful evidence for annual performance appraisals.

Ophthalmic Imaging serves as a reference for the practicing ophthalmic imager. Ophthalmic imaging combines photography and diagnostic imaging to provide insight into not only the health of the eye, but also the health of the human body as a whole. Ophthalmic photographers are specialists in imaging through and in the human eye, one of the only parts of the body where the circulation and nervous system is visible non-invasively. With technical perspective as context, this book will provide instructional techniques as well as the background needed for problem solving in this exciting field. The book covers all aspects of contemporary ophthalmic imaging and provides image support to ophthalmologists and sub-specialties including retinal specialists, corneal specialists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and ocular oncologists. This text serves as a reference for the practicing ophthalmic imager, or to imagers just getting started in the field.

This book provides information on how to extract the most from mobile applications and easily adapt and integrate them into daily practice. Today mobile applications that can optimize patient flow, help in examinations, perform anterior/posterior segment imaging, offer differential diagnosis and therapeutic options and even serve as patient drug reminders and councilors are easily available. Most of them have been developed by individuals and as a result lack marketing, even though they are free to download and use. Ophthalmology has always been at the forefront of medicine when it comes to adopting the latest developments — be they lasers, off-label anti-VEGF drugs or biocompatible implants. Mobile phones and tablets have infiltrated our private and professional lives and they are here to stay. As such, this book explores the endless possibilities that mobile computing offers, and introduces the vista of opportunities for providing better care, one download at a time. As part of the series “Current Practices in Ophthalmology” this volume is intended for residents and fellows in-training, as well as general and specialist ophthalmologists.
