The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary Illustrated Manual of Ophthalmology
W.B. Saunders, 1998 - Ophthalmology - 432 pages
Inside, a convenient outline format and hundreds of full-color illustrations speed you to the guidelines you need. Because the manual is organized by anatomic region and symptom, reference is easy. A consistent layout offers you a definition, etiology, symptoms, signs, differential diagnosis, evaluation, management, and prognosis for each condition; detailed illustrations, many in full color, demonstrate the salient features of each disorder; concise reviews discuss how to prepare patients for diagnostic tests, how to perform the tests, and what the normal results should be; guidelines explain when to refer patients to a specialist; color-coded sections - including an emergency section highlighted in red - make guidance easy to find; a wealth of appendices summarize differential diagnoses, common ophthalmic drugs and dosages, useful Spanish phrases, and more.
