Ophthalmology at a Glance Second Edition

Ophthalmology at a Glance is aimed at the medical student, special- ist trainee or general practitioner. It is a great pleasure to write the second edition of Ophthalmology at a Glance and introduce the reader to the many advances that have occurred in ophthalmology since 2004, not least with the training syllabus, corneal refractive surgery and cataract surgery, and in the treatment of medical retinal disorders. We hope that you find all of these advances reflected in this new edition.

We aim to provide the fundamentals of ophthalmology, starting with the basics of how to take a history, how to correct refractive errors, do the eye examination, the management of acute eye problems, and causes of gradual loss of vision in Parts 1 to 5. We will then discuss the areas of the eye and visual disturbance in more detail in the latter parts 6–13. The largest subspecialty part is vitreo-retinal, which in this

We have also introduced a new chapter dedicated to ocular oncology by Mandeep Sagoo and Karim Hammamji, an area that medical stu- dents, newly-trained doctors and GPs should be aware of. It is exciting in this second edition to have two new co-authors: Gurjeet Jutley, Specialist Trainee, and Laura Crawley, Glaucoma Fellow, who have both worked extremely hard to update many of the chapters, provide new images and write the case studies for the website.

Recently, retinal and macular diseases have become more common as causes of severe visual loss. In these cases, a fundal examination with dilatation of the pupils in a darkened room is necessary.A careful history of the patient’s ocular symptoms is essential. His past history and general illnesses, such as diabetes and hypertension, frequently provide useful clues.

basic ophtalmology- fourth edition

The need for a textbook for undergraduate medical students in ophthalmology dealing with the basic
concepts and recent advances has been felt for a long-time. Keeping in mind the changed curriculum
this book is intended primarily as a first step in commencing and continuing the study for the
fundamentals of ophthalmology which like all other branches of medical sciences, has taken giant
strides in the recent past.

While teaching the subject I have been struck by the avalanche of queries from the ever inquisitive
students and my effort therefore has been to let them find the answers to all their interrogatories.
It is said that revision is the best testimony to the success of a book. In the competitive market
of medical text publishing, only successful books survive.
