Description

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.

Key Features

  • In depth sections on clinical examination skills essential for clinical practice and professional examinations
  • A purely practical ophthalmology guide
  • The use of images where these are appropriate, rather than for all conditions or none
  • A book written by a staff in their area of subspecialty interest, rather than a few authors attempting to cover a wide range of subjects
  • Tutorials style information on the commonly performed investigations and procedures
  • Specific notes for primary care staff, in particular opticians

Reviews

"The book is well presented, with a clear well structured layout and good use of colour photographs thoroughout...Overall this book is outstanding. I keep my copy with me all the time, and would suggest that if there is only one book you can keep in Eye Casualty, it should be this one."
