Handbook of Visual Optics, Two-Volume Set

Handbook of Visual Optics, Two-Volume Set

Handbook of Visual Optics offers an authoritative overview of encyclopedic knowledge in the field of physiological optics. It builds from fundamental concepts to the science and technology of instruments and practical procedures of vision correction, integrating expert knowledge from physics, medicine, biology, psychology, and engineering. The chapters comprehensively cover all aspects of modern study and practice, from optical principles and optics of the eye and retina to novel ophthalmic tools for imaging and visual testing, devices and techniques for visual correction, and the relationship between ocular optics and visual perception.

The Skeffington Perspective of the Behavioral Model of Optometric Data Analysis and Vision Care

The Skeffington Perspective of the Behavioral Model of Optometric Data Analysis and Vision Care

No systematic analysis of optometric clinical data can be undertaken unless the findings are referred to a logical model that allows comparisons to be made of interaction characteristics that exist between the accommodative and convergence mechanisms inherent to the human vision system. Concomitantly, many of the concepts applied during any such analytical process are based on hypothetical constructs. This text re-examines the elements originally proposed by Dr. A.M. Skeffington, and offers a revised insight into how performance changes may occur as individual visual behavior adapts to the impact of environmental demands. In-depth research and extensive references attempt to substantiate the Skeffington paradigm of professional vision analysis. Long-standing challenges to the optometric profession are identified. As presented, the contents are appropriate for use as a classroom text, for reference, and for identifying areas for clinical research.

Primary Care Optometry

Primary Care Optometry

An ideal resource for anyone involved in eye care - students, opticians, optometrists, and ophthalmologists - this resource provides comprehensive coverage of the diagnosis and management of common eye and vision problems. Key topics include procedures for myopia control or reduction, as well as the co-management of refractive surgery and ocular disease. This book is also an excellent guide to detecting systemic diseases that can have an effect on the visual system. Complete coverage of key optometric skills, including: how to take a comprehensive ocular and health history how to thoroughly investigate ocular health status how to perform a thorough refractive and binocular vision examination how to prescribe corrective lenses and/or vision therapy how to co-manage refractive surgery and ocular disease. Comprehensive discussions of the theory behind each optometric procedure. An emphasis on current non-surgical methods of myopia control and reduction, as well as methods of caring for patients with impaired vision. A logical organization, divided into three main parts: anomalies of refraction and binocular vision, optometric examination, and diagnosis and management. In-depth coverage of topics that include: objective refraction, subjective refraction, binocular vision examination, corneal topography measurement, ophthalmic lenses, geriatric optometry, vision impairment, control of myopia, and management of ocular diseases in a primary care optometric practice. An increased emphasis on changes in vision likely to occur in older patients, including age-related vision loss. Expanded coverage of hot topics in optometry, such as diabetes and macular degeneration. Four new chapters covering Hyperopia, Age-Related Vision Problems, Age-Related Vision Loss, and Care of the Vision-Impaired Patient. The user-friendly layout now features more tables, boxes, and illustrations to speed you to important information. A new full-color design offers a wealth of vivid illustrations that clearly depict important procedures, concepts, and techniques.
