Now in its second edition, the new Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology continues to be an unparalleled source of knowledge, providing immediate access to the detailed clinical information a you need--in casualty, clinic, theatre, and on the wards.

Key sections for the trainee include clinical skills, aids to diagnosis, and investigations and their interpretation.

Basic perioperative care, medical emergencies, and advanced life support protocols are included. New to this edition are chapters on refractive ophthalmology, containing practical advice on the treatment of refractive error by use of glasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery, as well as chapters on evidence-based opthalmology, including a helpful introduction to critical appraisal, levels of evidence, and medical statistics as relevant to opthalmology.

Primarily intended for ophthalmologists, this handbook has become etablished as a valuable resource for anyone working with ophthalmic patients, whether optometrists, orthopists, ophthalmic nurses, or other health professionals in ophthalmology. It has also become a core text for postgraduate examinations.

Review:

The authors have managed to include a wealth of knowledge in this book, whilst simultaneously making it accessible and practical, and therefore the ideal reference book to keep handy in your clinic." --James Cameron, EyeNews
