Abstract:
The Handbook of Clinical Optometry has been designed to facilitate undergraduate and postgraduate students in Optics & Optometry. The aim is to present the latest developments in eye imaging equipment and the steps to be followed for a complete optometric examination. Specifically, it includes the protocol for a complete optometric examination which presents the objective examination of the refractive state of a patient through retinoscopy or automated refraction. It also analyzes the procedure of subjective refraction using a simple trial frame and trial lenses or using a phoropter. The slit lamp is presented, and its techniques for assessing the physiology of the eye and the corneal topography is analyzed with the presentation of modern topographers and its use in the detection of keratoconus. Reference is made to special imaging techniques such as optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT / POST-OCT), and modern OCT angiography. Imaging techniques also include ocular biometry, A-scan, B-scan ultrasound, UBM - IOL-Master, confocal and specular microscopy, direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy and the use of a non-mydriatic camera for retina observation. The perimetry technique used to evaluate the visual fields is described and a comparison is made between known perimeters as well as evaluation of their findings. The protocol also includes contrast sensitivity testing, color vision testing with the corresponding diagnostic tests, tonometry, gonioscopy, electrophysiological methods of vision examination with EOG, ERG, and VEP evoked potentials and finally reference is made to stereoscopic binocular vision and its testing techniques. Finally, all the necessary diagnostic tests are presented in a preoperative examination before eye surgeries and a small report on pediatric optometry. The handbook is completed with basic knowledge of ophthalmic lenses, such as aspheric, multifocal and prism.
