Clinical Methods in Ophthalmology: A Practical Manual for Medical Students

by Dadapeer K

Only few other branches of medicine have seen such dramatic changes in the last decade as ophthalmology. The book “Clinical Methods in Ophthalmology—A Practical Manual for Medical Students” has been divided into twelve chapters. Many topics in this book are discussed with a clinical orientation. The contents are carefully crafted to meet the undergraduate curriculum. Important points are highlighted and are supported by an array of neat photographs and depictive illustrations. Emphasis has been on Ophthalmic Examination Methods, Case Proforma and Diagnostic Tools. Ophthalmic lenses have been elaborately outlined. The drugs used in ophthalmology have been aptly described. The chapter ‘An Approach to a Patient with Red Eye’ is an attractive feature of the book. This will make the book useful for general practitioners as well. Major topics of discussion include symptomatology in ophthalmology, ocular examination, diagnosis, cataract, corneal opacity, corneal ulcer, diagnostic tests, ophthalmic instruments, ophthalmic lenses, drugs used in ophthalmology, ophthalmic surgeries, examination of retina, and community ophthalmology. Common ophthalmic surgeries such as anesthesia, cataract surgery, trabeculectomy, evisceration, and enucleation are discussed in detail. Diagnostic tests in ophthalmology including tonometry, slit-lamp examination, ophthalmoscopy, keratometry, retinoscopy, gonioscopy, ultrasonography, ultrasound biomicroscopy, specular microscopy, indocyanine green angiography, optical coherence tomography, and electrophysiological tests are briefly discussed in a comprehensive manner with a lot of clinical photographs.
