9780750675758: Primary Care Optometry, 5e (Grosvenor, Primary Care Optometry)

An ideal resource for anyone involved in eye care ― students, opticians, optometrists, and ophthalmologists ― this resource provides comprehensive coverage of the diagnosis and management of common eye and vision problems. Key topics include procedures for myopia control or reduction, as well as the co-management of refractive surgery and ocular disease. This book is also an excellent guide to detecting systemic diseases that can have an effect on the visual system.

  • Complete coverage of key optometric skills, including:
    • how to take a comprehensive ocular and health history
    • how to thoroughly investigate ocular health status
    • how to perform a thorough refractive and binocular vision examination
    • how to prescribe corrective lenses and/or vision therapy
    • how to co-manage refractive surgery and ocular disease.
  • Comprehensive discussions of the theory behind each optometric procedure.
  • An emphasis on current non-surgical methods of myopia control and reduction, as well as methods of caring for patients with impaired vision.
  • A logical organization, divided into three main parts: anomalies of refraction and binocular vision, optometric examination, and diagnosis and management.
  • In-depth coverage of topics that include: objective refraction, subjective refraction, binocular vision examination, corneal topography measurement, ophthalmic lenses, geriatric optometry, vision impairment, control of myopia, and management of ocular diseases in a primary care optometric practice.
  • An increased emphasis on changes in vision likely to occur in older patients, including age-related vision loss.
  • Expanded coverage of hot topics in optometry, such as diabetes and macular degeneration.
  • Four new chapters covering Hyperopia, Age-Related Vision Problems, Age-Related Vision Loss, and Care of the Vision-Impaired Patient.
  • The user-friendly layout now features more tables, boxes, and illustrations to speed you to important information.
  • A new full-color design offers a wealth of vivid illustrations that clearly depict important procedures, concepts, and techniques.

From the Publisher:

Maintaining the clear and easily understood presentation of concepts that made previous editions so popular, this new edition of Dr. Grosvenor’s classic text contains updated information on refraction and binocular vision as well as contact lens practice, functional methods of myopia control, newly-developed methods of refractive surgery, and optometric co-management of ocular surgery. With the continued aging of the population an increasingly important influence on optometric practice, the low vision chapter (now entitled Geriatric Optometry and Vision Impairment) now includes greatly expanded discussions of age-related changes in refraction, visual acuity, binocular vision and ocular health. The comprehensive coverage of binocular vision problems, contact lens practice, optometric co-management, geriatric optometry, and vision impairment make this the ideal text for both introductory and advanced courses and a useful reference for the established practitioner.
