The Chicago Eye and Emergency Manual

Front Cover
JP Medical Ltd, 2011 - Medical - 387 pages
This manual is introduced globally to the ophthalmic community, with the primary focus on the practicing eye care provider, and all those involved-in, or interested-in the management of ocular diseases. Ocular management issues are complex and inter-related to basic science, and to clinical presentations of a large spectrum of ocular diseases. Of equal importance is the recognition and diagnosis of the individual patient’s ocular disease state. Proper diagnosis will then channel the clinician in the correct direction to engage in the optimal management of the ocular condition, and thus relieve the patient’s signs and symptoms, and possibly improve the way the patient sees the world. All these clinical activities are often performed within a very narrow time-slot, with limited chair-time for the individual patient. It is of paramount importance to maximally utilize this limited time segment to deliver the best possible care to our patients. At the same time, it is important not to compromise eye care at the expense of speed. Hence, a clinician often needs the diagnostic and therapeutic reference materials that can be used in a short time to answer his clinical question(s). With this in mind, the text is written in an easy-to-read, quick reference format, while at the same time providing an extensive, and most comprehensive material, that the clinician will find extremely useful. Also, practical images are inserted throughout the text to complement the process of clinical patient care. This book helpful for practising ophthalmologists and students.
