Book Description

This well-established clinical textbook covers the spectrum of eye disorders but with a focus on the major preventable and treatable causes of blindness in developing countries.

Written specifically to address the information needs of doctors, nurses and medical assistants involved in managing eye patients in tropical and developing nations, the book’s practical approach is designed to support those working with limited specialist supervision and equipment.


Introductory chapters on anatomy and physiology of the eye and clinical skills are followed by chapters devoted to specific conditions such as xerophthalmia, onchocerciasis, leprosy and HIV. Also included are chapters on paediatric eye disease and visual impairment, and a practical guide to the diagnosis of common eye disorders.

Thoroughly revised and updated both in terms of text and illustration, Eye Diseases in Hot Climates Fifth Edition continues to provide relevant, practical advice for health care providers caring for eye patients in nations where blindness and visual impairment remain prevalent.

 

  • Major rewrite of all chapters, incorporating many new treatments that are increasingly accessible in poorer countries, particularly for retinal disease, trachoma and HIV
  • Thorough update on current epidemiology of worldwide visual impairment and blindness
  • Major overhaul of photographs and illustrations: almost all replaced with new, high quality images
