Ocular Trauma: Principles and Practice is the first comprehensive clinical reference on ocular injuries in more than a decade. Each chapter gives you detailed instructions on evaluation, treatment, and management, including "what to do", "how to do it", and "why to do it." You'll also learn techniques for developing individualized treatment strategies for hard-to-identify injuries.
The book begins with general terminology and classification of ocular trauma, and goes on to cover such topics as: the new role of endoscopy; eye restoration with complete iris loss; anterior chamber disorders; rehabilitation advances; medicolegal issues regarding the ophthalmologist as an expert witness; and much more! Insightful chapters written by patients offer their perspectives on the physical injuries and emotional trauma they have experienced.
This reader-friendly book is a valuable addition to the professional library of every ophthalmologist, retina specialist, resident, and emergency room physician who deals with trauma patients. No other resource gives you such an abundance of information on assessment, emergency intervention, management, and rehabilitation. Make sure you have the best, state-of-the-art information as you treat patients who have suffered an ocular injury.
