Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodney W. Nowakowski, OD, PhD (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
Description: The book includes step-by-step descriptions of clinical procedures for treating various disorders of the cornea and conjunctiva of the eye. Also included are ICD codes for diagnosis, CPT codes for the procedures, and approximate reimbursement rates.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical guide to common eye care procedures for the contemporary optometrist, including how to understand, perform, and bill for the procedure. This is a worthy goal, and the author meets the stated goal for the procedures given.
Audience: The audience is the optometrist, but it would be helpful to others providing primary eye care, e.g. family practitioners, emergency room physicians, and others who may treat these same conditions. It is also a valuable student reference for optometrists (and residents) in training. The authors are credible authorities for the subject.
Features: The illustrations vary in quality. All are acceptable, but some are clearly better than others. The ICD and CPT codes are definitely useful and a good feature.
Assessment: The book meets its intended goal and would be useful to the targeted audience. It is a recommended "buy" for those who interested in the subject.

A brief spiralbound reference for clinicians and students to the procedures for foreign body removal, epithelial debridement, anterior stromal puncture, suture cutting and removal, removal of cysts and concretions, cytologic stains, cultures and sensitivities, and corneal sensitivity testing. For each procedure there is a step-by-step description, a discussion of any special instruments needed, and a review of postprocedure concerns. Annotation c.
