A Synopsis of Ophthalmology, Third Edition provides a comprehensive view of the fundamental aspects of ophthalmology. This book discusses the important practical points in clinical ophthalmology, with emphasis on eye diseases. Organized into 28 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the systematic routine for the examination of every ophthalmic patient. This text then discusses the seven distinct clinical variations of acute conjunctivitis, namely, simple acute conjunctivitis, mucopurulent conjunctivitis, purulent conjunctivitis, ophthalmia neonatorum, membranous conjunctivitis, phylctenular conjunctivitis, and photophthalmia. Other chapters consider the treatment of glaucoma, chemotherapy, corticosteroids, and antibiotics. This book discusses as well the advances in surgical techniques, particularly cryo-probe and laser-beam techniques. The final chapter deals with the various techniques of slit-lamp examination, including diffuse illumination, direct focal illumination, retro-illumination, specular reflection, and sclerotic scatter. This book is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists. Medical students, general practitioners, and post-graduate students who are about to take a diploma in ophthalmology will also find this book useful.
