The ophthalmological consultation constitutes an important topic worthy of a scholarly and in-depth book on this subject. Hedges tackles this formidable task with a well-organized, concisely written, and complete book.
"...weighted toward the more common clinical entities..."
This valuable reference book is weighted toward the more common clinical entities likely to present in the hospitalized patient, but the reader can be well assured that virtually all ocular manifestations of systemic diseases are covered. The author assumes that the consulting ophthalmologist is well versed in the management of primarily ophthalmological diseases, such as glaucoma and retinal detachments, so quite rightly does not include comprehensive discussions of these subjects. This book is intended for the ophthalmologist and other physicians who need a handy reference book about when a consultation is indicated, how to go about getting one, and what eye findings should be looked for in each disease encountered in the hospital
