    DescriptionNow in its second edition, this new Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology continues to be an unparalleled source of knowledge, providing immediate access to the detailed clinical information you need - in casualty, clinic, theatre, and on the wards. It 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 accessed, being presented in a standard format with areas of importance highlighted. Key sections for the trainee include clinical skills, aids to diagnosis, and investigations and their interpretation. Basic perioperative care, medical emergencies and advanced life support protocols are included. New to this edition are chapters on refractive ophthalmology - containing practical advice on the treatment of refractive error by use of glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery - and evidence-based ophthalmology - a helpful introduction to critical appraisal, levels of evidence, and medical statistics as relevant to ophthalmology. Primarily intended for ophthalmologists, this handbook has become established as a valuable resource for anyone working with ophthalmic patients, whether optometrists, orthoptists, ophthalmic nurses or other health professions in ophthalmology. It has also become a core text for postgraduate examinations.
