Overview

Written by a practicing ophthalmologist, this book explains the eye and how it develops and functions—or can malfunction, especially as we age—and what our options are to maximize or retain eye health. Dr. Kitchen also explains the many treatments and surgical options available, as well as myths and false beliefs or promises that are common in relation to eye health and treatments today.

Dr. Kitchen describes time-tested, proven techniques, as well as new treatments and surgeries changing the nature of eye care, including refractive surgery options. He also explains common problems from red eye to macular degeneration, and spotlights beliefs and treatment claims that are uninformed or downright deceptive. His goal is to help Boomers and parents make well-informed decisions about eye care for themselves and their family members, and also to help aging consumers retain their visual health. Appendices include a glossary of eye and eye care terms.

The topics addressed include eye anatomy, examinations, medications, treatments, and surgery. Conditions described range from dry eye to ocular migraines, lazy eye, cataracts, glaucoma, and eye cancer.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Kitchen, an ophthalmologist with more than 36 years of experience, writes authoritatively on the eye from the patients viewpoint. The purpose of his comprehensive ophthalmologic survey, he writes, is to help people know the basics about their own eyes, to point out some of their choices in eye care, and to help them make informed decisions. He explains the basic facts e.g., anatomy, development, congenital eye problems, eyeglasses and contact lenses, maladies and diseases, the aging eyeas well as what to expect when facing corrective intervention such as surgery….The lay reader is most likely to refer to this up-to-date and fact-laden treatise as an ophthalmologic reference; professionals will surely find it a compact, current resource on the profession. Recommended as a complete, quick one-volume reference for libraries where eye care is in scope."

Library Journal (web review)

"Aimed at general readers, this text explains the basics of eye care for seniors, adults, and children. Using plain language, ophthalmologist Kitchen provides information on eye anatomy, vision testing, and corrective lenses and discusses common problems such as itchy eyes, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Developments in refractive surgery are also reviewed."

SciTech Book News

"Dr. Kitchen, a doctor who definitely knows what he is talking about, not only supplied interesting. factual, and helpful information but did it in a way that was easy to comprehend for those of us not knowledgeable in this area. He starts out with the basic information of the eye, flows into common eye problems, such as red eye and itchy eyes, moves into age related eye problems and brings us to a chapter where he talks of visual aids, diabetes and the likes with connection to the eye. .He ends his work with consumer information that is packed full of helpful tidbits for you, and he even includes a glossary of terms and words that will better help you understand your eye and the eye-care profession….[t]his is one great book and would be an asset in any home, calming fears and giving needed information and advise concerning eye-care, as to what not to do and what to do, warnings and recommendations, and whom to go to for the help you need. Very highly recommended. Excellent work."
