Basic Sciences in Ophthalmology: Physics and Chemistry

Basic Sciences in Ophthalmology aims to link clinical ophthalmology directly to its basic science roots This first volume describes the physics and chemistry required for a sound understanding of modern ophthalmology

The book opens with an extensive discussion of the interaction of light with matter and the way in which light is used in ophthalmic examinations and treatments After describing traditional methods of imaging, particular emphasis is placed on modern instrumentation such as OCT The interaction between light and tissues in different types of laser treatment is also addressed The chemistry section focuses on compounds particularly relevant to the eye, such as oxygen and water The origin and consequences of oxidative stress are reviewed, and the physical behavior of chemical compounds in the eye is explained Understanding is facilitated through the use of many examples taken from the field of ophthalmology The text is complemented by about 450 figures

Ophthalmology of Exotic Pets

This quick reference handbook covers the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease in a range of exotic companion animal species, including rabbits, rodents, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish It clarifies when extrapolation from cat or dog eyes is appropriate, or when new information is needed to ensure that diagnoses and treatments are appropriate for the particular species

Writing in an accessible and down to earth style, the author brings a wealth of personal experience to this specialised subject area The book contains many ophthalmic photographs of both anatomy in normal eyes and pathology in abnormal cases It also includes a separate chapter on the common ophthalmic features of exotic pets, discussing what can be learnt from cross-species comparison and another chapter giving a brief history of comparative ophthalmology

Ophthalmology of Exotic Pets is an invaluable aid for veterinary practitioners and students with an interest in exotic pet species, as well as for veterinary ophthalmologists

KEY FEATURES
Covers lagomorphs, rodents, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish
Offers clear guidance for species-specific treatment
Facilitates extrapolations from the cat or dog to the exotic eye
