This selection of articles from the Encyclopedia of the Eye covering retina, optics/optic nerve and comparative topics constitutes the first reference for scientists, post docs, and graduate students with an interest beyond standard textbook materials. It covers the full spectrum of research on the retina - from the basic biochemistry of how nerve cells are created to information on neurotransmitters, comparisons of the structure and neuroscience of peripheral vision systems in different species, and all the way through to injury repair and other clinical applications. The first single volume to integrate comparative studies into a comprehensive resource on the neuroscience of the retina Chapters are carefully selected from the Encyclopedia of the Eye by one of the world's leading vision researchers The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results

This title in the Rapid Diagnosis in Ophthalmology Series presents a wealth of full-color images - along with differential diagnoses - in side-by-side page layouts to assist you in identifying a full range of retinal disorders. A templated format expedites access to the guidance you need to diagnose the most common retinal conditions - from simple to complex - encountered in practice. Coverage of cutting-edge topics including lucentis therapy for wet ARMD, Avastin therapy for macular disease, and guidance on OCT imaging, help you keep your knowledge up to date. Hundreds of full-color images present conditions as they present in real life. Common diagnostic pitfalls discuss what to look out for when making a difficult diagnosis. A templated, color-coded layout and differential diagnosis boxes for each condition help you make quick, accurate clinical decisions. A focus on the most common conditions encountered in practice allows you to efficiently formulate treatment plans and referrals. SERIES EDITORS: Jay S.

John Dowling’s The Retina, published in 1987, quickly became the most widely recognized introduction to the structure and function of retinal cells. In this Revised Edition, Dowling draws on twenty-five years of new research to produce an interdisciplinary synthesis focused on how retinal function contributes to our understanding of brain mechanisms. The retina is a part of the brain pushed out into the eye during development. It retains many characteristics of other brain regions and hence has yielded significant insights on brain mechanisms. Visual processing begins there as a result of neuronal interactions in two synaptic layers that initiate an analysis of space, color, and movement. In humans, visual signals from 126 million photoreceptors funnel down to one million ganglion cells that convey at least a dozen representations of a visual scene to higher brain regions. The Revised Edition calls attention to general principles applicable to all vertebrate retinas, while showing how the visual needs of different animals are reflected in their retinal variations. It includes completely new chapters on color vision and retinal degenerations and genetics, as well as sections on retinal development and visual pigment biochemistry, and presents the latest knowledge and theories on how the retina is organized anatomically, physiologically, and pharmacologically. The clarity of writing and illustration that made The Retina a book of choice for a quarter century among graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, vision researchers, and teachers of upper-level courses on vision is retained in Dowling’s new easy-to-read Revised Edition.

A day-to-day guide on the diagnosis and management of routine to complex retinal disorders The diagnosis and treatment of retinal eye disorders often presents significant clinical challenges. The Retina Illustrated, edited by renowned retina specialist Justis Ehlers and an impressive group of worldwide contributors, provides a rapid-fire yet thorough approach to the visual world of retinal disease. Organized into ten sections and 102 succinct yet comprehensive chapters, this richly illustrated reference covers the full spectrum of retinal disorders, ranging from common degenerative diseases to emerging infectious retinal diseases. The book opens with a discussion of state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, followed by nine disorderspecific sections describing diagnosis and treatment of a wide-spectrum of retinal disorders, including degenerative, vascular, infectious, inflammatory, traumatic, oncology, and toxicities. The text covers the full age continuum, from conditions primarily impacting older adults, such as age-related macular degeneration and choroidal atrophy, to pediatric disorders, such as retinopathy of prematurity. Key Features Discussion of cutting-edge imaging diagnostics, including ultra-widefield angiography, intraoperative optical coherence tomography, and OCT angiography More than 400 high-quality illustrations augment the text, enhancing understanding of retinal disease, from symptoms and signs to differential diagnosis and management Reader-friendly format provides rapid assessment and review of numerous conditions This is a must-have reference for all providers who encounter patients with retinal disease, including general ophthalmologists, retina specialists, emergency medicine physicians, and optometrists. Ophthalmology residents and fellows-in-training will also find this book an invaluable education tool.

Pathologic Myopia is a major cause of severe vision loss worldwide. The mechanisms for vision loss include cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and above all, myopic maculopathy within the posterior staphyloma. The first edition of Pathologic Myopia is one of the only current books to specifically address this disease and discusses recent developments in imaging technologies and various approaches to treatments, such as laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, pharmaco-therapeutic injections in the vitreous, and surgery. This new edition is a timely update to the standard reference in the field, with new chapters on advanced refractive error correction, genetics, developing a classification system, and special surgical approaches for pathologic myopia. Complete with even more high-quality color images and informative tables, this book is written and edited by leaders in the field and is geared towards ophthalmologists, including residents and fellows in training, glaucoma and cataract specialists, and vitreoretinal macula experts.
