This compact, portable, and user-friendly clinical manual is geared to the needs of all health care professionals who treat ocular disorders. Organized and designed for rapid reference, the book is packed with information on the entire spectrum of ocular disorders and their treatment. This Second Edition is thoroughly updated, greatly expanded in scope, and includes ICD-9 codes.

The book begins with a Quick Reference Section where clinicians can find vital facts about ocular microbiology, laboratory tests, ocular side effects of systemic medications, and pharmaceutical agents used in eye care. The second section contains succinct, well-organized monographs on over 150 disorders.
