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.
