Clinicians prone to information overload will appreciate the concise, matter-of-fact style of Ophthalmic Essentials. Intended as a ready reference and memory aid for practitioners, a study guide for those taking board examinations, and a handy text for medical students and allied health professionals, this book covers the full range of subjects in ophthalmology. Specific topics include optics, corneal disease, glaucoma, retina, oculoplastics, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, and ocular trauma.

More than 24 distinguished authors contributed to the text, which is arranged in a loose outline format. Pertinent information associated with the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of most visual disorders can be quickly located.
