Clinical investigations play a crucial role in diagnosing and managing various ocular disorders in the anterior segment. The recent advancements in optical coherence tomography, including angiography, adaptive optics, and wavefront imaging, have brought a revolutionary change in diagnostics. These investigations aid in improving the diagnostic capability, identifying diseases at an early stage, detecting disease progression, and understanding the pathogenesis of the disease at a cellular level. The understanding of these investigations provides the clinicians with a powerful tool to aid in situations of diagnostic dilemmas. Although not all ophthalmic institutions have access to these new technologies, it is important to understand their basic principles, indications, and interpretations.
This book, with contributions from various authors working at the best centers in India, provides basic information about recent investigations in the field of corneal diseases, glaucoma, cataract surgery, and radiological imaging modalities. The text has been simplified to include the indications of the new tests, optical principles, interpretations of the printout, advantages, disadvantages, available clinical studies, and patient examples with a self-assessment quiz. Clinical photographs related to each investigation have been added to aid the reader in grasping the clinical utility of these tests.
