Ophthalmic nurse practitioners face many challenges today, owing to the effects of demographic change, advancing technology and research, and increasing government legislation. This book contains a wealth of information related to the nursing management of people with various ophthalmic conditions. At the same time, it encourages ophthalmic nurses and allied healthcare professionals to think critically about the wider political and professional issues impacting on their everyday practice. The last three decades have seen major advances in the care of people with ophthalmic conditions in all age groups, and ophthalmic nursing has become correspondingly more complex. This timely book reflects the most current, evidence-based practice in ophthalmic nursing while highlighting the need for ophthalmic nurses to develop habits of critical thought as a way of maintaining their position within a wider community of practice.
