Now in its second edition, the new Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology continues to be an unparalleled source of knowledge, providing immediate access to the detailed clinical information needed--in casualty, clinic, theatre, and on the wards.

The Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology 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, as well as chapters on evidence-based opthalmology, including a helpful introduction to critical appraisal, levels of evidence, and medical statistics as relevant to opthalmology.

* Provides a systematic summary of ophthalmic disease directed towards diagnosis, interim assessment and ongoing management
* Includes checklists for common clinical conditions and algorithms for important presentations
* In line with NICE and Royal College of Ophthamology Guidelines to provide essential evidence-based management advice
* Invaluable to all those working in ophthalmology and studying for postgraduate examinations
