Greater than 25,000 chemical items have the capability to reason ocular burns. simply because such burns may end up in lack of sight or the necessity for corneal transplantation, they need to be taken very heavily. This publication is the 1st to be dedicated solely to chemical ocular burns. All features of the topic are lined, together with heritage, epidemiology, chemical brokers and reactions, histology, pathophysiology, medical symptoms, clinical and surgical remedies, and emergency care.
Good illustrated with complete color photographs of the best quality, this publication offers a finished but sensible method of the analysis and co-management of diabetic eye disorder. the foremost sections conceal: * details on epidemiology and pathogenesis of diabetes and diabetic eye affliction * present administration and therapy modalities for powerful results * a evaluation of present medical exam suggestions, screening ideas and automatic grading for diabetic retinopathy * advice for constructing co-management schemes

CHAPTER 3 Ocular Surface Disease: Diagnostic Approach Ocular Cytology An important step in the diagnosis of m any in fect io us and infla m matory conditions of th e ocu lar surface is the examination of conjunctival or corneal specimens by light micros- copy. Standard stain ing procedures are widely used to faci litate the detection of microbial and human cells. This section d iscusses the procedures used in these investigat ions and the implications that can be drawn from their results.

This allows in vivo optical sections of the cornea with a resolution at cellula r and subcel lular levels. Confocal microscopy can detect infectious crystalline keratopathy, fun gal keratitis, and amebic keratitis. It has also been used to follow refractive surgery patients to anal yze haze formation and the complications of LAS IK flaps, such as epithelial ingrowth.
