Overview

SYSTEMIC DISEASES AND THE EYE leads ophthalmologists away from looking only at the eye and toward viewing the patient as a whole. This approach aids the ophthalmologist in making an accurate differential diagnosis. The text comprehensively covers all systemic diseases associated with the eye. The book is divided into three parts, each approaching ocular conditions from a different viewpoint. Part One is lavishly illustrated in full color. It describes different ocular conditions and related signs and gives the systemic diseases associated with them. Part Two is also filled with illustrations and covers the differential diagnosis of systemic signs. Part Three links the different ocular and systemic features and signs together. The illustrations are enhanced throughout with brief, bullet-point text that follows a consistent format for ease of reference.
