Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment
By Ming Wang MD
Since the advent of keratorefractive surgery and its rising popularity, irregular astigmatism has become an increasingly important issue for ophthalmologists and optometrists. Despite the success of LASIK and PRK, there are more and more patients experiencing visual quality problems due to the non-physiological modification of the corneal structure. Among these complications, irregular astigmatism is perhaps the most difficult to treat.
The first of its kind, Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment synthesizes our knowledge and understanding of irregular astigmatism and addresses state-of-the-art technology in management and treatment. Dr. Ming Wang, assisted by Dr. Tracy Swartz, has led a team of internationally known experts in the field to produce this innovative, comprehensive, and logically presented text, which includes more than 300 illustrations to supplement the information provided.
Inside you will find:
• History and optics of regular and irregular astigmatisms
• Useful criteria for diagnosis and classification
• Current state-of-the-art technologies for treatment
• Suggestions for future direction in treatment technology
Every physician who performs keratorefractive surgery understands that in reducing a patient’s refractive error, there is a possibility of creating irreversible effects on visual quality. Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatment is intended to help prevent and reduce the iatrogenic creation of irregular astigmatism, as well as provide effective treatment when postoperative complications do arise.
Complications discussed include:
• Decentered treatment
• Small optical zone
• Central island
• Oblate cornea
• Destablized cornea
In addition, this text systematically separates two distinctly different etiological groups of irregular astigmatism—that of a structurally stable cornea and that of a structurally unstable weak cornea—and comprehensively presents all treatment modalities for each.
Treatment technologies addressed include:
• UV corneal cross-linking
• Intacs intracorneal rings
• Penetrating and lamellar keratoplasties
• Custom wavefront- and topography-driven treatments
• Lens surgery and toric IOL
• Conductive keratoplasty

Ophthalmologic Drug Guide 2nd ed.
Douglas J. Rhee
Product DescriptionOphthalmology has long been considered a surgical area because so many disorders/diseases are treated surgically rather than medically. In the past ten years, however, there have been considerable therapeutic breakthroughs in non-surgical treatments. For instance, anti-glaucoma agents have becoming increasingly effective. This edition will include a new chapter for retinal disease. There are now several pharmaceutical agents being used to treat these diseases. Specifically, age-related macular degeneration has many new products – macugen, lucentis, etc. – and intraocular infections are primarily treated with intravitreal medications. Additionally, the anti-allergy and dry eye markets have grown tremendously in the last 2-3 years (endura, restasis, xibrom, etc).

Glaucoma is not a single disease that responds to a single treatment. A range of clinical entities is involved, including both ocular and systemic conditions. Glaucoma is difficult to diagnose, and that makes its treatment even more difficult. In this volume, the authors have written a clear and concise guide to the effective diagnosis and treatment of this not-so-simple disease. Beginning with a full classification and profile and ending with an overview of treatment options, Handbook of Glaucoma distills much of the medical literature into one straightforward reference. This guide is ideal for ophthalmologists, eye surgeons, geriatricians and any clinician attending to glaucoma patients.
