Written by a doctor of optometry, this well-conceived, intelligently compiled, clearly organized compendium of eye care offers basic information about the eye, an alphabetical listing of eye and visual system disorders, and, without prejudice, both conventional and alternative treatments for a wide range of common and unusual eye problems. Part one gives basic information about the eyes and how to care for them, including detailed sections on nutrition, herbal therapies, and homeopathic remedies. The second section begins with a troubleshooting guide of symptoms and possible causes and a brief but thorough section on first aid, then discusses disorders of the eye and visual system in alphabetical order, from accommodative insufficiency and albinism to styes, subconjunctival hemorrhage, and suppression. Each entry gives an overview of the disorder; conventional treatments and self-treatments; tables detailing effective nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic remedies; and a list of general recommendations. The third section offers eye-care techniques and procedures, including the latest information on refractive surgeries and vision therapies. The appendix contains a useful glossary, a list of recommended suppliers of the supplements and remedies recommended throughout the book, and organizations to consult for further information. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
