Description

Fully revised and updated throughout, the fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology now includes free access to the ophthalmic online media bank, a selection of high-quality clinical images and videos for a wide breadth of key ophthalmic diseases. Clear, concise, and practical, this handbook provides immediate access to the detailed clinical information you need, in casualty, clinic, theatre, and on the wards.

The core of the book comprises a systematic synopsis of ophthalmic disease directed towards diagnosis, interim assessment, and ongoing management. Assessment boxes for common clinical conditions and algorithms for important clinical presentations illustrate this practical approach. The information is easily accessible, presented in a clear format with areas of importance highlighted. Key sections for the trainee include: Clinical Skills, Aids to Diagnosis, Investigations and their Interpretation, Perioperative Care, Theatre Notes and Therapeutics. The wider practise of eye-care is supported by expanded chapters on Refractive Ophthalmology, Vision in Context, Evidence Based Ophthalmology and Resources for Ophthalmologists.

Now including newer treatments across a range of specialities such as SMILE, gene-therapy and retinal prostheses, as well as greater emphasis on the evidence underlying current clinical practice and guidelines, this handbook has never been more essential for all those working in eye-care. Whether you want to learn about patient-reported outcomes, identify a surgical instrument, interpret a statistical test, or diagnose and treat ophthalmic emergencies, you will find it here.

Whatever your role in caring for patients with eye disease: ophthalmologist, optometrist, orthoptist, ophthalmic nurse, or other health profession - discover for yourself why this handbook has become the 'go-to' resource for tens of thousands of eye-care professionals around the world.

Review

"This excellent handbook has now reached a mature 4th edition and it certainly keeps up to the excellent tradition and high standards set by other members of the superb Oxford medical handbook series. ... Not surprisingly, it covers a wide variety of material and would be very useful for both trainees and established practitioners in ophthalmology as well as GPs. In fact for GPs and other health care professionals, this book could easily function as virtually a sole source of ophthalmology knowledge. There is a lot of detail and clinical information within this excellent book but it is relevant and not overwhelming." - Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia

"This particular book is now in its 3rd edition and now updated, it is an impressive production... There is a lot of depth of detail and coverage and despite its thickness (which I think is a positive attribute) it is still very portable and can easily be carried in a case or take up a small amount of space in a desk... Special mention should be made of the excellent web resources for ophthalmologists at the end, which is most useful." - Glycosmedia

"The Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology has been around since 2006 and, in both it first and then second edition form, has quickly established itself as a popular reference source for clinicians to use in practice. Its resilient plasticised cover protects nearly 1,000 pages which cover assessment, identification and management of pretty well the full gamut of ocular and optical problems. Yet it is still easily fitted into a jacket pocket or top drawer, so its always available for that specific information about management or identification. Indeed the newly released third edition is more comprehensive yet, and at 1,100 pages, covers most areas relevant to us all... For price, detail and usefulness in everyday practice, this is the text to have in your consulting room." - Optician online
