Moorfields Manual of Ophthalmology

All the information you need is provided in this comprehensive, clinical yet concise and practical handbook. Inside you will find up-to-date "tutorial style" information on commonly performed examination skills and interpretation of investigations. Key information is given at a glance, ideal for the busy practitioner or as a revision aid for the trainee. Well-organized, clear and concise text accompanies full colour clinical photographs. The book is unique in that it provides explicit details on the day-to-day management of eye conditions; the reader is expertly guided though both the diagnosis and management of disease conditions. Each chapter also contains guidelines written exclusively for the general practitioner and primary care provider. Optometrists will also find this to be an indispensable guide, as pathologies found in every day practice will be included, enabling the practitioner to give patients qualified information about their symptoms.
