Lecture Notes: Ophthalmology, 11th Edition

by Bruce James, Anthony Bron
  • Paperback

Beautifully illustrated throughout, Ophthalmology Lecture Notes concentrates on the most common eye problems that health practitioners are expected to diagnose and manage.

The book begins with a brief introduction to ocular anatomy and eye examination, and then focuses on core conditions in ophthalmology. The highly structured text includes self assessment material at the end of each chapter, as well as a series of clinical cases at the end of the book – all designed to facilitate easy access to information, making the book an ideal resource for both study and revision, while the brand new companion website at www.wiley.com/go/james/ophthalmology features all of the book’s illustrations and images.

Whether you need to develop your knowledge for clinical practice, or refresh that knowledge in the run up to examinations, Ophthalmology Lecture Notes will help foster a systematic approach to the clinical situation for all medical students and hospital doctors.
