About this book

Introduction

Ophthalmology is a rapidly expanding field and the number of patients presenting with eye problems is increasing. Common Eye Diseases and their Management presents a problem oriented approach to the diagnosis and treatment of common eye diseases. As the title suggests, the text concentrates common eye diseases which are likely to be seen by general practitioners and optometrists at the primary care level. The latest advances in treatment are described and the text is supported by many illustrations (including colour) to aid the reader.

The purpose of this book is to teach basic ophthalmology to trainee ophthalmologists, optometrists, medical students and general practitioners and thus enable them to easily recognise and successfully treat these disorders when they come into contact with them.

"The text is structured to provide a brief introduction to the basic science of the eye … . It provides an excellent introduction to clinical ophthalmology, with clear and simple explanations … . There are 146 figure drawings and numerous clinical photographs throughout which illustrate and illuminate the text well, providing high quality visual reference material. This text makes an excellent learning aid for anyone needing a basic introduction to clinical ophthalmology. … It is an invaluable basic and preliminary learning resource for clinical ophthalmology." (Sumona Chaudhury, Eye News, April/May, 2007)

"The book is well-written using a colloquial and clear style that makes the reader feel at ease with the text. … The text is supported by many high-quality colour clinical photographs and by an important number of excellent diagrams, drawings and original cartoons … . the authors succeed in their goal and offer us a comprehensive and useful insight into the field of general ophthalmology.
