This authoritative book, written by an international team of ophthalmic practitioners, is a valuable resource for healthcare professionals who care for patients with eye problems. The second edition, updated after ten years since the first publication, incorporates new findings, practices, and treatments. The book is divided into three sections, with the first section covering the structure and function of the eye and basic principles of ophthalmology and eye examination. The second section deals with patient care in various settings, work-related issues, patient education, and includes two new chapters on eye banking and global eye health. The third section takes a systematic approach to patient care, discussing common disorders affecting each structure or group of structures, from the front to the back of the eye. The book concludes with a useful glossary of ophthalmic terms. Although some aspects of practice are UK-based, the book addresses principles and directs readers to local policies and interpretations. The first edition was a core text for ophthalmic nursing and education worldwide. This updated edition offers a comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based resource for all ophthalmic healthcare professionals.
