The book has been created for healthcare professionals needing to manage ophthalmology patients in the context of their busy practice. It has been conceived and created with the help of ten practising GPs to give totally user friendly access to primary care tailored ophthalmic knowledge. Part I is an ideal desk top reference manual dealing with many of the eye conditions GPs will see and deal with in everyday clinical practice. It also gives GPs the chance to make a difference in the holistic management of patients by addressing their associated systemic concerns. The layout is intuitive with answers to the questions you will inevitably consider when you see your patients with eye conditions; What's going on? If I examine the patient what will I find? What do I do if I've diagnosed it? What will the hospital do? What do I need to do in my surgery? What do I tell the patient? What further problems may arise and how to deal with them? A series of simple questions lead the clinician to the most likely diagnosis and recommend the ideal management. If referral to the Hospital Eye Service is indicated the author attempts to give an ideal time scale for ophthalmology review, taking some of the guess work out of how soon the patient should be seen. Part II is a more formal ophthalmology text that simplistically explains the key knowledge needed. It deals with examination technique and the basic sciences as well as clinical management from a different perspective. This section is ideal for doctors in training aiming to achieve baseline knowledge of ophthalmology for exams and assessments. Sections I and II are extensively cross referenced thereby allowing Section I readers to look up the deeper background behind the conditions they are managing if they are so inclined. Allied Professionals, be they optometrists involved in shared care of eye patients or ophthalmic nurses, will find this a valuable reference text to give them easily accessible information about ocular pathology and its management at the primary care and hospital level.
