Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology 1st Edition

The introduction of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents has revolutionized therapy for a host of ocular diseases associated with leakage from normal blood vessels and pathologic blood vessel growth. Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology is an all-inclusive reference designed to provide detailed, up-to-date, and clinically relevant information on the current use of anti-VEGF agents in the treatment of all ocular conditions.

Drs. Jay S. Duker and Michelle C. Liang have assembled a prestigious group of contributors who pool their collective expertise in this comprehensive book. Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology is split into two sections with the first providing the history of VEGF and an overview of anti-VEGF agents and different routes of drug delivery, as it is important for eye care providers to be familiar with up-to-date aspects of the medications and indications for use.

The second section details the clinical uses of anti-VEGF agents in numerous ocular diseases, from the anterior segment including cornea and glaucoma to uveitis and various retinal and choroidal diseases. Each chapter in this section summarizes the disease process and utilizes high-quality ocular imaging to demonstrate the therapeutic use of the anti-VEGF agents.

Some of the topics covered in Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology:

  • Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Retinal Vein Occlusion
  • Uveitis
  • Neovascular Glaucoma
  • Macular Edema
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Corneal Disease

Anti-VEGF Use in Ophthalmology combines the theory and applications of anti-VEGF agents, making it not only a great learning tool for beginners but also a useful reference tool for a wide range of eye care professionals including optometrists, residents, comprehensive ophthalmologists, as well as specialists in anterior segment, pediatrics, and vitreoretinal disease

Free radicals in ophthalmic disorder

Free radicals are molecules with an unpaired electron in the outer shell or an electron that was damaged from either attack or from a poor splitting bond. After a free radical is formed it will continue to attack other molecules, which usually results in the damage of tissue or destruction of a healthy cell. Free radicals arise normally through metabolism. However, sometimes the body’s immune system will create them on purpose to neutralize viruses and bacteria. Free radicals are implicated in many ophthalmic disorders including uveitis, optic nerve damage, retinal ischemia, and macular degeneration. Free Radicals in Ophthalmic Disorders presents the most current knowledge pertaining to the role of free radicals/oxidants in ocular disorders, and the use of antioxidants in the prevention of these disorders.

Written by today’s leading ocular scientists and clinicians, Free Radicals in Ophthalmic Disorders:

  • gives comprehensive coverage of the role of free radicals/oxidants in ocular disorders
  • covers the use of antioxidants to prevent oxidative stress and ocular tissue damage
  • examines external factors that may result in the stimulation and heightened occurrence of free radicals/oxidants

Diagnosis of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma

Diagnosis of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma

The goal of this consensus is to provide a foundation for diagnosing and managing primary open-angle glaucoma and how it can be best done in clinical practice. Identification of those areas for which we have little evidence and, therefore, the need for additional research always is a high priority. We hope that this consensus report will serve as a benchmark of our understanding. However, this consensus report is intended to be fluid. It is expected that it will be revised and improved with the emergence of new evidence. Hardbound with many photos and figures. 16×24 cm (6.3×9.4 in)

Pediatric Lens Diseases 1st ed

Pediatric Lens Diseases

This book focuses on disorders of the lens, which are a major cause of blindness in children. During development, children’s eyes have unique physiological and structural characteristics, such as an immature blood-aqueous barrier, which presents considerable challenges for ophthalmologists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric lens disorders. Throughout the book, the pathology, examination, anesthesia, surgical treatment and nursing care of pediatric lens disorders are discussed in detail.  It not only presents diverse pictures and images from clinical practice, it also includes the latest findings in the field. It will be of interest to ophthalmologists and paediatricians looking to improve the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric lens disorders and provide a valuable reference resource for all those involved in ophthalmic clinical practice, teaching and research.

Yizhi Liu is a professor and director of Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University, China and he is also the director of State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology at Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, China.
