Myopia: Animal Models to Clinical Trials by Roger W. Beuerman; Seang Mei Saw; Tien Yin Wong; Donald T. H. TanMyopia is the most common optical disorder in the world, and is on the rise in all parts of the world. The impact of myopia is evident as the driving force in the development of refractive surgery and of the eye glass and contact lens industries. Clearly, it is a lifestyle issue as well as a childhood disease that involves an unresolved problem in genetics. In Singapore (where myopia has reached the highest rates in the world) as well as in Taiwan and Japan, the affected group has developed greater degrees of myopia, leading to additional secondary effects on vision including blindness. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of myopia.
The Neurological Treatment for Nearsightedness and Related Vision Problems: A Guide to Vision Improvement Based on 30 Years of Research by John William YeeThis volume introduces and explains an eye-opening treatment for correcting nearsightedness and related vision problems naturally and neurologically. The author presents his methodology on neurologically correcting primary refractive errors in the mild and moderate myopic range. Ortho C (or orthoculogy, which is Latin for "correcting the whole eye") is a natural treatment, requiring no alteration to the cornea. Key features of the book: * Introduces a neurological and natural treatment for the correction of nearsightedness * Presents many case studies showing the effectiveness of this treatment, based on the author's 30+ years of research * Provides step-by-step instructions for designing lenses to suit the need, determining the sequence of wear, and conducting resistance tests * Grants readers the right to apply Ortho C to treat any patients with mild and moderate myopia, anisometropia, or compound astigmatism. erate myopia, anisometropia, or compound astigmatism.
Pathologic Myopia by Lawrence Yannuzzi (Editor); Kyoko Ohno-Matsui (Editor); Richard F. Spaide (Editor)Pathological Myopia is a major cause of severe vision loss worldwide. The mechanisms for vision loss include cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and above all, degeneration of the macula within the posterior staphyloma. Pathological Myopia is one of the only current books to specifically address this disease and discusses recent developments in imaging technologies and various approaches to treatments, such as laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, pharmaco-therapeutic injections in the vitreous, and surgery.

Updates on Myopia: A Clinical Perspective by Marcus Ang (Editor); Tien Yin Y. Wong (Editor)This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This open access book discusses basic clinical concepts of myopia, prevention of progression and surgical treatments for myopia and pathological myopia. It also summarises the latest evidence and best practices for managing myopia, high myopia and its complications. Written by leading experts, the book addresses clinical diagnosis and interpretation of imaging modalities, and various complications of myopia such as glaucoma, choroidal neovascularization, retinal degeneration and cataracts. It is a valuable comprehensive resource for general and sub-specialist ophthalmologists as well as residents and ophthalmologists in training.

Vision: How It Works and What Can Go Wrong by John E. Dowling; Joseph L. DowlingOver the past fifty years, enormous progress has been made in understanding visual mechanisms and treating eye disorders. And yet the scientist is not always aware of the latest clinical advances and the clinician is often not up to date on the basic scientific discoveries. Writing in nontechnical language, John and Joseph Dowling, a neuroscientist and an ophthalmologist, examine vision from both perspectives, providing concise descriptions of basic visual mechanisms and related clinical abnormalities. Thus, an account of the photoreceptors is followed by a consideration of retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration; an explanation of the retina's function is followed by details of glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. The authors begin with the cornea and lens, which project an image on the light-sensitive elements inside the eye, the photoreceptors, and how that process can be compromised by such disorders as cataracts and corneal disease. They go on to describe, among other things, how the photoreceptors capture light; retinal and visual cortical anatomy and physiology; and higher level visual processing that leads to perception. Cortical disorders such as amblyopia are discussed as well as specific deficits such as the inability to recognize faces, colors, or moving objects. Finally, they survey the evolution of our knowledge of vision, and speculate about future advances.
