This book, while combining depth and breadth of content does so in an accessible manner which enables it to be used as a comprehensive resource not just for ophthalmic professionals, but for any health care professional who cares for patients with eye problems. The first section within the book considers the underpinnings of ophthalmic practice including basic science and eye examination. The second considers issues around diverse care settings and the particular care of different patient groups as well as issues of work and patient education, while the third section takes a systematic approach to the care of patients with ophthalmic problems. An accompanying appendix lists sources of support for health care professionals and patients and the book concludes with a glossary of ophthalmic terms. The integration of knowledge from all the different ophthalmic health disciplines, as well as the involvement of an international team of expert ophthalmic practitioners combine to achieve a resource which will enable practitioners to achieve effective, evidence based, informed and thinking practice for all those with eye problems.
