Synopsis of the Book

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. But the eyes can also give a glimpse to the systemic diseases that may be present to in a human body. Unfortunately many medical schools do not devote enough curriculum time to ophthalmology studies and what many non-specialists know in this area only scratches the surface.

Essential Ophthalmology aims to equip general practitioners and non-specialists with a working knowledge of ophthalmology so that they are able to treat their patients more effectively and provide holistic care. Various eye conditions are covered throughout the book, with a section outlining the bare essentials of that condition. There is also a chapter that serves as an advisory for non-specialists. Topics are presented in a bite-size manner to make information more accessible. This book is the definitive reference guide for all practitioners.
