The new edition of this highly successful book provides a concise and practical guide to eye disease for the non-specialist, avoiding jargon and giving clear guidance on the practical management of common eye complaints.
Containing fully updated chapters, it provides the GP and optometrist with everything they need to know to enable them to deal with eye problems in primary care. The early sections describe the scope and limitations of eye care in general practice, including training, equipment and tests for ophthalmic disorders. The bulk of the text is confined to common symptoms of eye disease with particular emphasis on differential diagnosis. Later chapters describe systemic disorders with eye problems, eye trauma, surgery of the eye and the screening of asymptomatic patients. Appendices cover a formulary of ophthalmic practice, a list of suppliers, patient information, and a glossary of terms.
A conversational style is used and patients’ frequently asked questions are included. Advice is given on the use of basic equipment, on when to treat simple problems, and when to refer more complex ones. This book is well illustrated with full color photographs

Written by an international team of ophthalmic practitioners, this authoritative book is a vital resource not only for ophthalmic professionals, but for any healthcare professional who cares for patients with eye problems. In the ten years since the first edition was published, practice has moved on, as has the evidence for practice. This second edition draws on the passion and goodwill of the original team of authors, complemented by other colleagues, to fully revise and update the text in line with new findings, new practice and new and exciting treatments.
The book is broadly divided into three sections. The first section considers the structure and function of the eye, as well as the basic principles of ophthalmology and eye examination. The second section considers patient care in diverse settings, as well as work-related issues and patient education. It also includes two entirely new chapters on eye banking and global eye health. The third section takes a systematic approach to patient care, working from the front to the back of the eye, discussing some of the common disorders affecting each structure (such as the lens or cornea) or group of structures (such as the eyelids or lacrimal drainage system). The book concludes with a very useful glossary of ophthalmic terms.
Some aspects of practice discussed in the text are, of necessity, UK based, but these are clearly indicated and, wherever possible, principles (rather than specifics) are addressed and readers are directed to local policies and interpretations.
The first edition of this book became a core text for ophthalmic nursing, in particular, and for the education of ophthalmic nurses across the world. This new edition will provide a comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based resource for all ophthalmic healthcare professionals.

The aim of this book is to highlight the latest findings in Aniridia research. Aniridia, meaning “without iris”, is a rare genetic disorder affecting vision, characterized by the incomplete formation of the iris (the coloured part of the eye that surrounds the black pupil). It may also cause other segments of the eye to be under-developed such as the optic nerve and the macula (the central part of the retina). Aniridia and associated conditions affect individuals differently. So while some affected people are partially sighted or blind, others may have near normal sight. Aniridia is congenital (present at birth) and is caused by a dysfunction of the PAX6 gene, situated on the 11th chromosome that causes the premature cessation of eye development. Aniridia affects between 1:40,000 to 1:100,000 people, and affects males and females equally. People with Aniridia may also experience secondary conditions such as Photophobia, Nystagmus, Glaucoma, Cataracts and Keratopathy.

Reviews from the past edition:
“For the doctor who sees the occasional neuro-ophthalmology patient, this book should be an excellent resource. Residents should read this book, because they can learn the subject material. The book could also be an excellent resource on a general practitioner’s shelf, because it is concise and easy to use.”
-William V. Good, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, California, Optometry and Vision Science
“Overall, this is a very good introductory textbook for residents in ophthalmology and neurology and can be used as a quick reference book by practitioners in either discipline. It is still the best-sized review book available on the topic for residents preparing for their in-training exams and will continue to be a popular choice for this purpose.”
