The child's eye: diagnosis of ophthalmic disorders in children
A good working knowledge of pediatric eye disease, detection and treatment is essential to effectively screen for the more common disorders, and to refer appropriate children early on to an ophthalmologist. Primary health care workers have an important role to play in preventitive ophthalmology. This book provides the family practitioner and pediatrician with a concise, illustrated, clinical guide to eye disorders affecting children. The Child's Eye presents a practical, methodical approach to eye examination in children, and discusses relevant and common childhood eye disorders, with the emphasis on prevention, early recognition, and management. Anyone who attempts to examine the eye of a child soon realizes that the approach to examination, the tests involved and the information yielded at each step differs from adult ophthalmological evaluation. The spectrum of pediatric eye disease is dissimilar to adult disorders, and this new book will reflect these differences.
