Reviewer: C. Denise Pensyl, OD, MS (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
Description: This book is part of a series attempting to describe clinical optometric procedures. This volume is limited to techniques for examining the retina, vitreous, and choroid.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical guide to examining the retina, vitreous, and choroid by explaining the rationale for each technique and introducing the steps and equipment involved in the procedure. This is an important and timely topic matter. As the role of optometrists in eye and health care continues to expand, proficiency in advanced diagnostic techniques is a necessity.
Audience: This book provides a general overview of the techniques for beginners. A review of the optics involved with each procedure is included. The necessary materials and some equipment options are discussed. Indications and advantages/disadvantages for each technique are briefly mentioned. A very basic description of how to perform the procedures and interpret results is given. The author also cites appropriate billing procedures.
Features: This book has incorporated several diagrams and photographs to accompany explanations of each procedure. A few color plates demonstrating views of retinal pathology are included. A list of suggested reading materials is given for clinicians desiring more detailed and thorough explanations of advanced diagnostic techniques and the results.
Assessment: This book provides basic information to clinicians unfamiliar with examination procedures for the retina, vitreous, and choroid. As the need for optometric expertise in advanced diagnostic procedures grows, this book serves as an introductory guideline for choosing techniques and equipment, performing procedures and recording results.
