About this book
This book is a comprehensive, in-depth, and up-to-date resource on eye examination that will be of great practical value for ophthalmologists and optometrists. The aim is to guide the practitioner through the diagnostic process and the implications for management of the ocular patient, and in so doing to demonstrate that it is possible to reach appropriate decisions on the basis of eye examination. Every year, existing ocular equipment is being upgraded and new diagnostic equipment is appearing on the market. This book reflects recent progress in upgrading by providing information and guidance on the latest innovations in ocular examination and eye testing while also highlighting the continuing important role of the traditional eye test. The coverage accordingly ranges from such long-established techniques as ophthalmoscopy, tonometry, and slit lamp examination through to the latest advances in OCT technologies, digital fundus photography, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, ocular ultrasound, and angiography. The authors hope that the book will assist all practitioners who perform ophthalmologic examinations.
