Are you looking for concise, practical answers to those questions that are often left unanswered by traditional glaucoma references? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for common clinical dilemmas? Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions most commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between glaucoma specialists. Dr. Dale K. Heuer, and associate editors Dr. Steven J. Gedde and Dr. Richard Lewis, have designed this unique reference in which top glaucoma specialists offer expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with the day-to-day diagnosis and care of glaucoma patients. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to glaucoma with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate glaucoma pearls. Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert pearls that even high-volume glaucoma specialists will appreciate. General practitioners, residents, fellows, and optometrists alike will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within. Some of the questions that are answered: • Which imagining device should I use in my practice? • How should I set a target intraocular pressure? • What is “maximum medical therapy” for glaucoma now? • Which glaucoma medications may be used safely during pregnancy? In children? • Is selective laser trabeculoplasty better than argon or diode laser trabeculoplasty? • Which of the new incisional surgical alternatives to trabeculectomy should I consider for my patients? In what clinical settings should I consider them? • In which patients with glaucoma and cataract should I perform a combined procedure? Cataract surgery alone? Trabeculectomy first?

Digital fundus images can effectively diagnose glaucoma and diabetes retinopathy, while infrared imaging can show changes in the vascular tissues. Likening the eye to the conventional camera, Image Analysis and Modeling in Ophthalmology explores the application of advanced image processing in ocular imaging. This book considers how images can be used to effectively diagnose ophthalmologic problems. It introduces multi-modality image processing algorithms as a means for analyzing subtle changes in the eye. It details eye imaging, textural imaging, and modeling, and highlights specific imaging and modeling techniques. The book covers the detection of diabetes retinopathy, glaucoma, anterior segment eye abnormalities, instruments on detection of glaucoma, and development of human eye models using computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer principles to predict inner temperatures of the eye from its surface temperature. It presents an ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) system for anterior chamber angle imaging and proposes an automated anterior segment eye disease classification system that can be used for early disease diagnosis and treatment management. It focuses on the segmentation of the blood vessels in high-resolution retinal images and describes the integration of the image processing methodologies in a web-based framework aimed at retinal analysis. The authors introduce the A-Levelset algorithm, explore the ARGALI system to calculate the cup-to-disc ratio (CDR), and describe the Singapore Eye Vessel Assessment (SIVA) system, a holistic tool which brings together various technologies from image processing and artificial intelligence to construct vascular models from retinal images. The text furnishes the working principles of mechanical and optical instruments for the diagnosis and healthcare administration of glaucoma, reviews state-of-the-art CDR calculation detail, and discusses the existing methods and databases. Image Analysis and Modeling in Ophthalmology includes the latest research development in the field of eye modeling and the multi-modality image processing techniques in ocular imaging. It addresses the differences, performance measures, advantages and disadvantages of various approaches, and provides extensive reviews on related fields.
