From the Author:

We wrote this book to be easy to use for the primary eye care practitioner. As a unique collaboration between an optometrist and ophthalmologist, we aimed for a primary eyecare emphasis but with depth and breadth as well. It aims to be comprehensive and have sufficient depth of content to be useful. There are 158 conditions covered, each with a double page including full color photographs and with an emphasis on management. Areas covered include cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, eyelids, skin, lens and surgical signs. There is also a full appendix listing all topical therapeutic drugs.
