From the Publisher
Organized into 11 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the process of assessment of a patient with eye disease, which includes taking a good history, examining the eyes with adequate illumination, and testing the visual function. This text then describes exophthalmos, which is the most common condition of the orbit and indicates the possibility of thyroid disease or a space-occupying lesion. Other chapters consider the common causes of ocular injuries, including injury from flying particles, sharp instruments, chemicals, and ocular injury associated with head injury. The final chapter deals with the common, therapeutic, and diagnostic ocular drugs.
This book is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists, physicians, nurses, students, and all those paramedical personnel who have to deal with common eye disease.
