Description:

This unique resource is a practical, easy-to-use guide for the non-ophthalmologist healthcare provider as they encounter patients with eye complaints and other concerning ophthalmic conditions. The Columbia Guide to Basic Elements of Eye Care is specifically designed with the non-ophthalmologist in mind, and provides a foundation of basic eye anatomy and physiology, functional analysis, pathology, and concepts in eye care.

Each chapter delivers an accessible summary of various ophthalmic diseases and conditions, all of which are frequently encountered in everyday practice. These chapters provide in-depth discussions on a wide range of topics, from testing and examination procedures to management protocols, referral guidelines and expected frequency of follow-up for each disorder. Complete with hundreds of high-quality, descriptive illustrations and clinical photographs, The Columbia Guide to Basic Elements of Eye Care presents clear, understandable explanations of basic eye anatomy, physiology, disease and treatment for non-ophthalmic practitioners and students. In doing so, this guide provides a framework for determining the normal versus the abnormal, helping the reader recognize which patients require referral, and identify which conditions are developing, require urgent treatment, or can be routinely followed. Non-ophthalmologist healthcare providers and students alike will find this book, written by leaders in the field, a practical resource to consult as they encounter patients with treatable but potentially sight-threatening conditions.

User’s Review:

Students entering the healthcare professions today get minimal if any exposure to ophthalmology in spite of the fact that the eye is the target of many specific maladies as well as systemic diseases of major importance, such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension. For this reason, I highly recommend that generalist healthcare providers have a copy of this excellent manual close by. It provides a comprehensive guide to the eye–how to examine it, diagnose and treat its minor problems, and how to decide when referral to an ophthalmologist is indicated. The numerous photographs and illustrations compliment the clearly written text giving the reader confidence that he or she can effectively and safely treat conditions of this vital organ.
