Ocular Therapeutics Handbook: A Clinical Manual is directed at the needs of optometrists, nurses and primary care physicians and provides succinct, rapid access information for most common ocular problems encountered in a primary care setting. It is divided into three sections: Quick Reference, Ocular Therapeutics and Appendices. The Quick Reference section covers such topics as ocular microbiology, lab tests and procedures, pharmaceutical agents, and side effects of medications. The Ocular Therapeutics section discusses diseases, traumatic injuries, and ocular urgencies and emergencies. The appendices provide a summary of abbreviations, conversion charts, case report sheets and important phone numbers. The chapters have been developed to serve as a snapshot, presenting the clinician with the most relevant information regarding the pathophysiology and etiology of diseases, patient demographics, signs and symptoms, lab tests, and recommended approaches to treatment.
