An Outline of Ophthalmology focuses on the anatomy, diseases, and diagnosis of the impairments of the eyes.
The book first offers information on the assessment of vision and visual symptoms and the sudden, gradual, and transient loss of vision. Discussions focus on refractive errors, occlusion of the central retinal artery, retinal detachment, choroiditis, cataract, chronic glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, and retinal emboli and temporary vascular occlusion. The manuscript also examines blindness, ocular pain and discomfort, and irritable eye.
The text ponders on the dry and watering eye, headache and facial pain, and the eyelids. The publication also takes a look at proptosis, conjunctiva, sclera, and cornea, pupil and iris, and abnormal eye movements, double vision, and squint. Topics include pseudoproptosis, tumor of the orbit, orbital hematoma, abnormal iris, nystagmus, and conjugate gaze.
The manuscript is a valuable source of information for medical students and professionals and readers interested in the diseases of the eyes.
