Overview

This clear and concise clinical manual provides a user-friendly guide to primary eye care. Jargon-free, it removes the mystery and anxiety that most primary eye care providers so often feel when confronted by patients with emergency eye problems. Most commonly occurring eye problems can be safely managed in the primary care setting, using simple techniques of history taking and examination. This manual will give the practitioner, unfamiliar with ophthalmology, step-by-step instructions allowing a diagnosis to be reached, treatment given, and referral to be made when appropriate. An essential purchase for general practitioners, accident and emergency departments, minor injuries units, optometrists, occupational health departments, first aid stations and all primary care providers routinely treating eye complaints.

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

Editorial Reviews

J. F. Donal Conway
This single-authored text has four sections, a glossary of terms, and a two-part appendix. The first two sections contain basic background information and examination techniques. Common eye problems and their management, as well as treatment techniques, comprise the latter two sections. The appendix includes dosing information for medication described in the text and equipment required for the examination and management of common eye problems. Preceding the appendix is a glossary of relevant terms. The purpose is to provide a reference for practitioners with little or no background in ophthalmology, guiding the clinician in diagnosing, treating, and appropriately referring patients presenting with common eye problems. The author targets a wide range of practitioners, particularly nurses and paramedical staff. However, all clinicians with minimal training in ophthalmology would benefit from this text. A variety of topics are covered and presented in a clear, easy-to-understand format. The author guides the reader through basic anatomy and examination of the eye without the use of technical terminology. Eye problems common to the primary care population are described with particular emphasis placed on diagnosis and initial treatment, as well as prioritizing referrals. The final sections of the text include basic treatment techniques, and a glossary of commonly used terms. There are also numerous color photographs and diagrams of exceptional quality, providing a valuable reference for clinicians of all levels of experience. This is an excellent source of basic information for the practitioner with little or no experience in ophthalmology. The sections are well organized, enabling the readerto make appropriate initial treatment decisions for common eye problems in a step-by-step manner. The text is easy to comprehend as unnecessary medical jargon has been omitted. I recommend it to all providers who care for patients with eye problems, but lack formal training or experience in ophthalmology.
