    Book details

This book sets out to provide trainee and practising ophthalmologists with a visual reference of the common conditions seen in the practise of ophthalmology. By linking the photographs with clinical descriptions and line drawings, the book hopes to achieve a clear explanation of the condition shown. The book contains chapters explaining all aspects of ophthalmology from basic techniques of eye examination to neuro-ophthalmology. Diagnostic and therapeutic methods are discussed throughout, and embryology, pathology and histology are included where appropriate. This second edition retains the basic order of the first, but the text and illustrations have been extensively revised and updated, with new or better examples of the range of ocular conditions. This edition includes fresh information on AIDS, and assessment of computerized visual fields and magnetic resonances have been included. The first chapter, "Methods of Ocular Examination", has been completely reviewed and updated. The layout and style of the book has been re-designed with the aim of easy access.
