Overview

Eye Diseases in Hot Climates is the only eye textbook specifically written for developing countries and the tropics. Focusing on common and important diseases, and especially those that are the major cause of blindness in developing countries, it is written from a clinical perspective but also emphasises what can be done in prevention and primary health care.

*carefully and extensively revised with integrated colour illustrations
*introductory chapters cover anatomy and physiology in the eye, optics, and methods of examination and treatment
*common diseases of the eye, their symptoms, signs, causes, management, treatment and prevention
*chapters on trachoma and xerophthalmia both major causes of eye disease and blindness, as well onchocerciasis and leprosy: important in certain areas of the tropics

This volume is particularly valuable to the doctor, medical assistant or nurse who has to treat eye patients without specialist supervision and often with limited equipment and facilities. The specialist and postgraduate trainee visiting or returning to the tropics will also welcome this guide to eye diseases in developing countries.

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