About this book

This atlas offers a truly comprehensive update on the use of imaging technologies for the diagnosis and follow-up of glaucoma. In addition to standard automated perimetry, gonioscopy, fundus photography, and stereophotography, other advanced, high-resolution methods for imaging the eye in glaucoma are explained in detail, including ultrasound biomicroscopy, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, scanning laser polarimetry, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography. The role of the various tests and the keys to optimizing their use in clinical practice are detailed with the aid of high-quality figures in order to enable the reader to achieve the best possible performance when applying these tools. The risk of developing visual disability and blindness as a consequence of glaucoma varies widely among affected individuals. Personalized testing strategies and tailored therapeutic interventions are required to effectively reduce visual impairment due to glaucoma. Glaucoma Imaging will assist residents, researchers, and clinicians in improving their ability to understand and integrate the information obtained using traditional techniques with the reports provided by computer-assisted image instruments.

Dr. Ferreras has been involved in numerous clinical trials and his research has included the diagnosis of glaucoma by means of high-definition optical coherence tomography and scanning laser polarimetry with enhanced corneal compensation.  He is the recipient of an International Ophthalmologist Education Award (2009) and an Achievement Award (2013) from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Dr. Ferreras is a member of the editorial board of Case Reports in Ophthalmological Medicine and a member of the International Journal of Ophthalmology Expert Board. He has been guest editor for a Journal of Ophthalmology special edition on “Different aspects in different glaucomas” (2010-11) and for the BioMed Research International special issue on “Advances in imaging technologies for evaluating the retina and the optic disc” (2014). He is the author of more than 80 peer-reviewed publications.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide an update on the use of imaging technologies for glaucoma. This is a good resource for ophthalmologists, ophthalmology residents, optometrists, and glaucoma researchers. … This is a valuable resource for clinicians and researchers to help improve the quality of care for glaucoma patients.” (Diana V. Do, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
