Ophthalmic Emergency Manual is a practical and concise book providing essential quick tips and specific therapeutic information on various ophthalmic emergencies. It covers most medical and surgical emergencies to be encountered in daily ophthalmic practice. As a special feature, Ophthalmic Emergency Manual presents some data within informative tables making it easier to understand and to remember. The appendices chapter is one of the longest chapters being so peculiar in bringing up together various topics that are widely distributed in traditional ophthalmology books. This chapter contains 11 appendices starting with mydiatric/cycloplegic eye drops, ending with ocular manifestations of systemic diseases. In between it provides practical material on: how to prepare fortified antiobiotic drops; a drug glossary with proper doses of cholarhydrate, mannitol, systemic antibiotics and antifungals; ocular diagnostic tests such as Tensilon, Schirmer and forced duction test; ocular side effects of a wide range of systemic drugs arranged alphabetically in a long table; all the ophthalmic abbreviations with their meanings are shown; suture material; local and infiltrative anesthesia; a comprehensive list of eye drops with their topical side effects and contraindications. Chapter eight is a special chapter on general ophthalmic problems and is meant to cover topics in the gray zone that are partially covered in different chapters. This book is written for the ophthalmology trainees and busy practitioners who need immediate access to additional information on differential diagnosis and treatment of eye emergencies. This manual is not designed for the shelf but rather for the white coat pocket.
