Description

A Synopsis of Ophthalmology, Fourth Edition provides a comprehensive view of the whole of ophthalmology.

This edition includes a chapter on advances in ophthalmology, dealing with such trends as ultrasonography, fluorescein angiography, and use of lasers. The tables of antibiotics and steroids and various proprietary drops commonly used in the treatment of glaucoma are completely updated and revised. This book emphasizes the ocular side-effects of systemic medication in relation to the increasing use of drugs that produce ocular symptoms. The ocular manifestations of general disease, diabetic retinopathy, and ocular symptoms in autism are also discussed.

This publication is a good reference for senior medical students and general practitioners interested in the pathology and treatment of the eye.
