This lavishly illustrated detailed atlas offers a complete and up to date assessment of FAF imaging in retinal ailments. It additionally compares FAF findings with different imaging innovations reminiscent of fundus picture, fluorescein- and ICG angiography in addition to optical coherence tomography.
General ophthalmologists in addition to retina experts will locate this a really valuable consultant which illustrates normal FAF features of varied retinal illnesses.

Primary Optic Nerve Sheath Meningioma

Optic nerve sheath meningioma (ONSM) is a unprecedented tumour. circumstances are typically separated into fundamental ONSM, which arises both intraorbitally or, much less typically, intracanalicularly, and secondary ONSM, which arises intracranially and hence invades the optic canal and orbit. this can be the 1st booklet to hide all very important features of the analysis and remedy of basic ONSM.

Ultrasound biomicroscopic findings (upper left, pre-laser iridotomy; upper right, post-laser iridotomy) and related pre-laser gonioscopic findings in a patient with plateau iris configuration. Without indentation (lower left) focal lines show a gap between the iris and cornea. With indentation, the angle base is clearly visible and the iris contour shows the characteristic sine-wave sign. The ciliary process is placed anteriorly and there is no space between the iris and ciliary process.

20 Yang et al. compared the biometric parameters, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, and lens position within 24 hours of presentation and again after two weeks in eyes with APAC. They found, however, there was no change observed in these parameters in both APAC-affected and fellow eyes. 21 Conclusion Ocular biometric measurement is important in the screening, diagnosis and management of angle closure patients. However, the ocular biometry is dynamic and influenced by many factors that are still not fully understood.
