Ocular Rigidity, Biomechanics and Hydrodynamics of the Eye
Descriptif détaillé : Ocular Rigidity, Biomechanics and Hydrodynamics of the Eye
The basics of anatomy and physiology are explored and the relevant data for the clinician are emphasized throughout the book. The engineering aspects as well as the clinical interpretation are presented to provide context.
What is the content of "Ocular Rigidity, Biomechanics and Hydrodynamics of the Eye" ?
Ocular Rigidity, Biomechanics and Hydrodynamics of the Eye summarises recent evidence on ocular rigidity, but also provides a complete presentation of the data so far.
The authors have recently worked on ocular rigidity corneal and globe biomechanics and hydrodynamics and the new, up-to-date data on the subject are highlighted in each chapter.
The aim is to provide the framework or the understanding of these parameters and to determine their relevance in health and disease.
This book will be an essential read for all practicing ophthalmologists looking to gain a more in-depth understanding of this interesting area of research particularly in refractive surgery and glaucoma.
Who are the authors of "Ocular Rigidity, Biomechanics and Hydrodynamics of the Eye" ?
Ioannis Pallikaris, MD, PhD, is a Greek ophthalmologist who in 1989 performed the first LASIK procedure on a human eye. Professor Palikaris was the rector of the University of Crete between 2003 and 2011 and president of ESCRS holding many awards including the Barraquer from AAO, the Ridley medal from ESCRS and the Kellman innovator from ASCRS.
He is also the founder and director of the Institute of Vision and Optics in the University of Crete. His research is focused on visual Optics and refractive surgery, biodynamics and mechanics of the eye.
He first developed a device for the intraoperative measurement of the eye rigidity, leading to numerous publications in that field. He designed several instruments, such as the rotating brush, pivot diamond, arcutome and also Eye tracey, PALM, EPI Lasik and EYEPCR. Lately, he is serving as a clinical coordinator in a multinational study on FixOflex, a device he has developed for reconstructing the peripheral lens capsule for elimination of PCO and more precise position and centering of the IOL optic.
Miltiadis Tsilimbaris, MD is the Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Crete Medical School. He is the Director of the University Eye Clinic of Heraklion and the Director of the Laboratory of Optics and Vision of the University of Crete Medical School. He shares his professional time between clinical care, research and teaching.
Dr. Tsilimbaris is a vitreoretinal surgeon and he has clinical and research interests focused mainly in retina and vitreoretinal diseases. He is involved in pre and post-graduate teaching and he has published over 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Together with the other two editors he has a long standing interest in the clinical implication of sclera rigidity and has co-authored with them several publications on the topic.
Anna Dastiridou MD, PhD is an adjunct lecturer in Ophthalmology in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and University of Thessalia Medical School in Greece. She is an ophthalmic surgeon with a special interest in glaucoma. She is involved in pre- and post graduate teaching and her research is focused mainly on the biomechanics of the eye and the use of imaging in ophthalmology. She has coauthored 55 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
