Overview

This concise source for the clinical anatomy of the visual system covers the clinical anatomy of the eye, its adnexa, and the visual pathways in a well-illustrated, well-referenced format. It balances histologic content of the microscopic anatomy with functional aspects of the eye and visual system. Clear illustrations complement the text and provide clinical information on diseases and disorders that represent departures from normal clinical anatomy.

• Full color illustrations throughout enhance the anatomical and clinical information.
• The only anatomy text written by an optometrist for optometrists and students - it provides a strong foundation for recognizing and understanding clinical situations, problems, and treatments.

• Clinical Comment sections have been expanded to include more clinical correlation comments and put knowledge of ocular anatomy into a practice perspective.
• Clinical appearance of normal structures is now included, with normal photos of the cornea, iris, lens, retina, etc., to show how appearance is directly related to structure.
• New information on aging changes in ocular tissue and the visual pathway keeps readers current with the expanding field of geriatric care and the changes that occur to normal anatomy.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Leo Paul Semes
This concise reference for the clinical anatomy of the visual system contains sufficient histologic information for the reader to appreciate microscopic structure and apply it to function. The book is intended as a source for clinical anatomy of the eye, its adnexa, and the visual pathways. This is a unique source for this information presented in a well-illustrated, well-referenced format. It offers a good balance between the microscopic anatomy and functional aspects of the eye and visual system. The target audience is optometry students and ophthalmology residents. Although it will serve as a good resource for optometry students, residents in ophthalmology will use it more as a reference for overview. The strong point of the book is its illustrations. The drawings and figures (although most of the latter are borrowed) are useful and complement the text well. If there is a shortcoming among the illustrations, it is that the fundus photographs are in black and white. They would have more impact in color. This is a unique text slotted between the hard-core histology formats and superficial anatomical treatments. It is easy to read and user-friendly. The figures and illustrations complement the text and offer the reader clinical comments regarding diseases and disorders that represent departures from the normal clinical anatomy described.

Provides optometry and ophthalmology students with a single text describing the embryology, anatomy, histology, blood supply, and innervation of the globe and ocular adnexa. Pupillary and visual pathways are covered as well. Includes key terms in bold, clinical notes, and extensive, detailed b&w diagrams and photos, plus a section of color photos and illustrations.
