This book provides comprehensive coverage of novel manifestations of known infections, emerging infections with documented ophthalmic involvement, and the growing issue of resistance among certain infections. It fills a gap in current literature by approaching ophthalmic manifestations of infectious disease from a unique perspective. Each chapter is co-authored by an ophthalmologist and an infectious disease specialist to provide multidisciplinary insight. This approach enhances the ability of both ophthalmologists and infectious disease specialists to identify the diverse manifestations of common and rare infections in the eye.

Chapters begin with a general introduction, followed by sections on Infectious Disease and Ophthalmology. The book covers a range of infections, including viral retinitis, fungal infections, syphilis, tuberculosis, vector-borne illnesses, and uncommon post-operative infections.

The content is concise and practical, making it useful for both infectious disease specialists and ophthalmologists. Emerging Ocular Infection provides valuable insights and information on infectious diseases affecting the eye, making it an essential resource for clinicians in these fields.
