The aim of this handbook is to provide healthcare professionals with a reliable source of ophthalmic nursing standards and procedures, ensuring safe and consistent care for patients in various ophthalmic settings. As the field of ophthalmology constantly evolves, with new roles and technologies emerging, this book serves as a benchmark for ophthalmic practitioners.
The authors recognized that inconsistencies in practice can occur due to variations in training among healthcare professionals. To address this issue, they developed a set of standards to guide ophthalmic nursing care.
This highly respected resource is a one-stop guide for all ophthalmic practitioners, including registered nurses, healthcare assistants, and ophthalmic technicians. The revised second edition provides even greater clarity and brings all the guidance up-to-date. The book covers essential topics such as communication, visual acuity testing, ocular medications, biometry, the ophthalmic outpatient department, the ophthalmic accident and emergency department, the slit lamp and tonometry, and additional standards using specific equipment. The book also includes suggested documentation for evidence of development and competence.
Overall, this handbook offers a comprehensive resource for ophthalmic practitioners to ensure that they provide high-quality and consistent care to patients.
