Atlas of Inflammatory Eye Diseases

Edited by Soon-Phaik Chee
Authored by Wee-Kiak Lim, Bobby CL Cheng, Kristine Bacsal, Daniel HW Su

This colour atlas on ocular inflammation is comprehensive in its coverage of the common uveitides seen in the Asia-Pacific. Every page of this handy atlas illustrates typical signs and relevant imaging techniques of the various episcleritis/scleritis and uveitic diseases, which readers will find most helpful.

It is systematically organised with key facts laid out in point form for easy reference. Brief comments about the diseases, differential diagnosis and management are also included. 

The ophthalmologist-in-training and the general ophthalmologist would find these pearls indispensable in the care of patients with ocular inflammation.

Book Review

“The authors of this colour atlas…. have made a concerted effort to provide the reader with succinctly summarized clinical features including diagnostic and current management. Such an approach should help ophthalmologists-in-training to grasp basic facts related to the inflammatory ocular diseases…  should also be particularly valuable to individuals in the Asia-Pacific region who are interested in management of uveitis and related ocular inflammation….

Atlas of Systemic Diseases & Ocular Signs

Edited by Soon-Phaik Chee
Contributors: Seng-Ei TI, Sharon LC Tow, Wee-Kiak Lim, Audrey WL Chia, Bobby CL Cheng, Kristine Bacsal, Joanne L Sims, Daniel HW Su and Anita SY Chan

This Atlas provides both ophthalmologists and physicians comprehensive coverage on systemic diseases and the associated ocular signs seen in the Asia-Pacific.

Comprises two sections:

• The Atlas of Systemic Diseases covers key facts about each disease, differential diagnosis and management together with abundant colour photographs and imaging to illustrate the typical signs and diagnostic investigations for the various systemic conditions. 

• The Atlas of Ocular signs is filled with photographs illustrating specific eye signs, and a brief reference to the differential diagnosis and associate systemic diseases, allowing the reader to cross-reference the systemic conditions that may present for the first time to the an ophthalmologist.

General ophthalmologists, ophthalmologists-in-training, as well as physicians who may encounter such patients will find this as an indispensable book.

Book Review

“….is the ideal addition to the clinician’s library, particularly those dealing with this disorder in Asia Pacific who are a less bit familiar with these entities.

The information is presented in a systematic fashion for each disorder, leading the reader through the pertinent facts pertaining to each uveitic entity; not only the clinical findings, but relevant tests and approaches to therapy. This atlas will be seen as indispensable for the clinician seeing patients with these disorders.”

Animal Models to Clinical Trials

edited by Roger W Beuerman (Singapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore & National University of Singapore, Singapore), Seang-Mei Saw (Singapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore & National University of Singapore, Singapore), Donald T H Tan (Singapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore & National University of Singapore, Singapore), & Tien-Yin Wong (Singapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore & National University of Singapore, Singapore)

Myopia is the most common optical disorder in the world, and is on the rise in many countries, particularly in East Asia. The impact of myopia is evident as the driving force in the development of refractive surgery and of the spectacle and contact lens industries. While myopia is often seen as a childhood disease that involves complex genetic-environmental factors, it is also a major cause of adult blindness.  In Singapore (where myopia has reached one of the highest rates in the world) as well as in Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong, affected patients have greater severity of myopia, leading to additional secondary complications such as glaucoma.

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of myopia.  It is aimed at ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, scientists and pharmaceutical companies. The topics are uniquely treated in that they cover research at the laboratory bench as well as clinical applications and population-based approaches in epidemiology.
