Field of medicine: Ophthalmology in the primary care setting.
Format: Softcover book.
Audience: Primary care providers, including general internists, family practitioners, allied health professionals, and trainees.
Purpose: To give primary care providers a thorough introduction to and useful reference on ophthalmology.
Content: The book begins with an introduction to normal ophthalmic anatomy and the ophthalmologic examination and then considers the differential diagnosis of eye symptoms. Several chapters deal with the anatomy and pathology of structural elements of the eye and are arranged in anatomic sequence, from the eyelids to the retina. The rest of the chapters focus on special topics, such as glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric eye problems, orbital disease, and ocular trauma. In each chapter, a section on anatomy is followed by a diagnosis- or symptom-driven catalogue of conditions. The discussion of each condition covers signs, symptoms, etiology, differential diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up. A section on the ophthalmologic manifestations of systemic disease and a chapter on medications are also included.
