Critical elements such as pharmacokinetics, influence of formulation technologies and ingredients, as well as impact of disease conditions on products development are addressed. Products intended for both the front and the back of the eye are discussed with an eye towards future advances.
A top expert reveals his insights into Meibomian gland dysfunction, a ubiquitous, misunderstood disease that leads to Dry Eye syndrome…In Reversing Dry Eye Syndrome (Yale University Press 2007), ophthalmologist Steven Maskin introduced readers to Dry Eye syndrome, explaining what the syndrome is, why it occurs, and how it can best be managed and treated. In Your Dry Eye Mystery Solved, he reveals his recent discoveries and treatments for Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), an underlying disease that leads to Dry Eye syndrome and involves blockage of the oil-producing tear glands within the eyelids. Not only are these glands key to clear vision and comfortable eyes, but when disrupted they can cause severe pain and a host of related symptoms.

This book covers the intersections between neurointervention and neurology, neurointervention and neurosurgery, and neurointervention and other specialties. It fills the…gap in the literature by placing specific emphasis on appropriate patient selection, preparation, and post-procedural management. Concise and comprehensive, this text covers the increasingly important aspects of the neurointerventionalist profession, as it has moved away from a purely technical role to a focus on clinical care. In addition, the most rapidly expanding area of neurointervention, ischemic stroke, is thoroughly examined in this text, where other texts on this subject fail. It is also meant as a reference for non-neurointerventionalists who may desire to learn more about how their patients can benefit from the therapeutic or adjunctive techniques that the neurointerventionalist can provide. Neurointervention in the Medical Specialties, Second Edition is an essential guide written for neurointerventional specialists from all backgrounds, both in practice and in training

This book provides extensive data on the more common and many of the more rare congenital and hereditary syndromes that…manifest in the nervous system and skin. Though often complex and multi-systemic, these disorders can frequently be diagnosed using a combination of simple visual inspection and sound clinical expertise. Drawing on fully referenced information from thousands of articles, the international editorial team has prepared a comprehensive overview that includes historical perspectives, clinical features, the pathogenesis, and diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. In addition, it addresses the biochemical, molecular, and genetic basis of the disorders. The book is divided into four main sections. Starting with general aspects of aetiology, diagnostics and therapy, the first part then covers the genetics, neuro-imaging, neuropathology, ocular manifestations and surgical management. The second part discusses developmental malformations, such as Sturge-Weber syndrome, Ataxia-Telangiectasia, Hypomelanosis of Ito and other rare syndromes, including haemangiomas. The focus of the third part is on tumour suppressor/DNA repair disorders, the most common of which is Neurofibromatosis 1. It also describes Neurofibromatosis 2, Schwannomatosis, Tuberous sclerosis, von Hippel-Lindau disease, Naevoid basal cell carcinoma and others. The book’s fourth and final section covers defects in enzymes and structural proteins, which manifest as Cerebrotendinous xanthromatosis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Menkes syndrome, Refsum disease.

Many ocular tumours are life-threatening or associated with lethal syndromes but can be difficult to diagnose because of their rarity…and diversity.Unlike conventional atlases, this book contains a format that orders lesions according to their colour and ocular location to help readers quickly find the information they need even when they do not already know the diagnosis.Multimodal imaging results are presented to help provide a definitive diagnosis when slit-lamp and ophthalmoscopic findings are inconclusive. The seemingly random organisation of cases enables self-assessment by trainees.Written for optometrists and ophthalmologists, Clinical Atlas of Ocular Oncology is an essential resource for practitioners at any stage in their career.

Modern oculofacial plastic surgery as a field is quite young, with the majority of the literature and leaders in the…field developing since the 1950s. As such, the body of literature is quite small compared to other fields. Currently, there is no unified source where readers can learn about the core manuscripts that drive clinical decision-making and influence thought. This book gathers over 50 foundational studies in the oculoplastics field and provides commentary on each study. Discussion of each study includes the abstract, in-depth commentary on the strengths, limitations, and implications of each paper, and guidance for further reading on the topic with a brief review. A short remark by an author from the paper will provide additional color commentary on the inspirations and challenges involved in conceiving and conducting the study. Foundational Papers in Oculoplastics is relevant for anyone who is interested in oculoplastics (ophthalmologists, oncologists, plastic surgeons, etc.) and provides a nice overview of the field with interesting personal anecdotes from those who helped establish it.

This book is the most comprehensive (and possibly the first) manual on ‘Rhino-Orbito-Cerebral Mucormycosis (ROCM) that covers mucormycosis of the…nose extending to sinuses, orbit, and brain, all in. This volume covers the surge of cases during the COVID-19 pandemic, early identification and causative factors, microbiology, pathology and radiology, and the clinical presentation. Notes on surgical approaches, extent, and techniques of debridement, number of sittings, antifungal therapy, complications, and their management equip readers to manage these cases confidently. Detailed descriptions of ROCM surgery accompanied by nearly 500 photographs and anatomical drawings help support diagnostic and surgical decision-making. Also included is information on various specifications of MRI that help in achieving a perfect surgical clearance. The book includes chapters on debates on salvaging the orbit in ROCM, various situations, their management, the extent of resection, antifungal dosage and duration, prognostication of the patient, and postoperative care. The book assists surgeons in gaining the skills to perform endoscopic clearance of difficult areas like pterygoplataine fossa, infratemporal fossa, pterygoid plates, and the lacrimal drainage system, which offers significant advantages in terms of avoiding postoperative morbidity as compared to an external route. Since the external route is required in the most extensive form of the disease, the book has also covered it extensively. This book is an indispensable resource for otorhinolaryngologists, ophthalmic surgeons, ophthalmic plastic surgeons, physicians, microbiologists, pathologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, faciomaxillary surgeons and junior and senior consultants optometrists and students.
