Description

This fully updated new edition has been designed for ease and speed of use in clinical practice. It empowers you with the knowledge to triage your patients into three main groups: emergencies requiring immediate referral; non-emergencies requiring routine referral; or those with treatable conditions.

Primarily intended for doctors, optometrists, ophthalmic nurses and other health professionals involved with eye care within the community, this refreshingly readable handbook discusses the major ophthalmological symptoms in the context of daily clinical practice.

Contents:
• Basic eye assessment: history and examination

• Double vision
• Other important symptoms
• Gritty, itchy or watery eyes
• Abnormal eye appearance and/or eye examination
• Diabetes, hypertension and systemic medications
