Pocket Tutor Ophthalmology continues the tradition of ophthalmology teaching in Edinburgh, established in 1883 when Douglas Argyll Robertson was appointed the first lecturer in diseases of the eye at the university.
For doctors not in the specialty, ophthalmology too often appears a mysterious subject with many acronyms, unpronounceable terms, and innumerable syndromes. In reality, and as this book emphasises, ophthalmology has the advantages that the eye is (mostly) visible and the diseases that affect it can be diagnosed logically, if an ordered approach to history taking and examination is adopted. For instance, patients with a vague complaint of visual blurring may harbour a potentially blinding condition that may be missed if the simple tests of pupillary function and visual field examination are omitted. For those in hospital practice, the importance of eye examination in relation to extraocular disease cannot be overemphasised. For example, a young patient with a headache may be harbouring a brain tumour, with the only sign being papilloedema seen on fundoscopy.
I confidently recommend Pocket Tutor Ophthalmology as an easily accessible guide to diagnosis and management for clinical students, trainee ophthalmologists, emergency doctors, general practitioners and anyone involved in the management of patients suffering from diseases of the central nervous system.
James F Cullen FRCS FRCSEd
Former Consultant Ophthalmologist, EdinburghPreface
Eye diseases are amongst the most common conditions seen in hospital, contributing to approximately ten percent of all outpatient appointments. The majority of these eye conditions are often easily treatable once they have been diagnosed. In addition, a large number of systemic diseases have ocular manifestations.
Correct diagnosis and management can mean sight is saved, or even restored. Consequently, a sound understanding of the eye and its surrounding structures in health and disease is widely relevant in medicine. Pocket Tutor Ophthalmology aims to provide a concise and accessible reference to aid understanding and diagnosis of common ophthalmological diseases.
Ophthalmology is often perceived as being difficult to access due to not only the specialised nature of the eye itself, but also the specialist terminology and equipment. This book helps simplify the approach to ocular examination by providing a sound platform of relevant anatomy and physiology. Chapter 2 takes the reader through the important examination techniques and investigations to assist diagnosis. Chapter 3 contains a series of algorithms, developed specifically for this book, which help make clinical diagnosis easier.
The clinical chapters are divided on an anatomical basis and although not exhaustive cover the most common conditions. Each chapter starts with a series of clinical scenarios that provide examples of how these conditions present in the clinical setting. The wonderful thing about ophthalmology is that most conditions can be diagnosed visually so the chapters contain many high-quality colour photographs of pathology.
This book has been written for for medical students, trainees, primary care practitioners and optometrists, to assist in the diagnosis of eye disease. The handy pocket size ensures portability and ease of use. We have made every effort to make Pocket Tutor Ophthalmology simple, clear and up-to-date and hope you will find it both enjoyable to read and clinically useful.
