About this Book

The new edition of this highly successful book provides a concise and practical guide to eye disease for the non-specialist, avoiding jargon and giving clear guidance on the practical management of common eye complaints.

Containing fully updated chapters, it provides the GP and optometrist with everything they need to know to enable them to deal with eye problems in primary care. The early sections describe the scope and limitations of eye care in general practice, including training, equipment and tests for ophthalmic disorders. The bulk of the text is confined to common symptoms of eye disease with particular emphasis on differential diagnosis. Later chapters describe systemic disorders with eye problems, eye trauma, surgery of the eye and the screening of asymptomatic patients. Appendices cover a formulary of ophthalmic practice, a list of suppliers, patient information, and a glossary of terms.

A conversational style is used and patients' frequently asked questions are included. Advice is given on the use of basic equipment, on when to treat simple problems, and when to refer more complex ones. This book is well illustrated with full color photographs.
