Here's the best single-source guide to the basic science and clinical skills needed by ophthalmic medical personnel! Designed for both on-the-job and classroom training, this multi-faceted, new text is packed with all of the information needed to build afoundation in basic ophthalmic sciences, neuroanatomy, and optics. Plus, step-by-step guidelines give readers hands-on exposure to the full range of skills needed in practice - from the basics, such as history taking and visual assessment, to the most advanced such as ophthalmic photography and surgical assisting. Concise coverage of pathology helps readers recognize and understand the eye disorders and eye diseases they face in practice.
