Description:

This essential clinical reference provides at-a-glance access to the information you need to diagnose and manage of a wide range of ophthalmic disorders. Organized alphabetically, its consistent format presents each condition on a 2-page spread with diagnostic information on the left and treatment guidelines on the right. The 2nd edition features full-color illustrations for nearly every condition, as well as the ICD-9 diagnostic code for the disorder, common signs and symptoms, complications, lifestyle management, pharmacologic treatment, clinical pearls, referral information, and much more. Disorders are presented alphabetically for quick access. The consistent, templated format presents each condition on a 2-page spread with diagnostic information on the left and treatment guidelines on the right, enabling you to access everything you need to know about the disorder without having to turn the page. The diagnosis page offers quick access to the ICD-9 diagnostic code for the disorder, definition, synonym, common signs and symptoms, and complications. The treatment page covers lifestyle management, non-specialist medical therapy, and specialist management. Coverage also includes pharmacologic treatment, goals of treatment, prognosis, precautions, pearls and other considerations, and referral information. Expert contributors ensure you are getting the most up-to-date, accurate, and clinically relevant information available. Consistent coverage of each disorder includes four new entries: description of the disorder, synonym, pearls and considerations, and when to refer. A full-color clinical photograph or illustration for nearly every disorder helps you visualize and quickly recognize the condition in the clinical setting. Includes coverage of several additional disorders, including keratoconus, herpes simplex keratitis, and Graves disease. A quick-reference ICD-9 diagnosis list on the inside cover helps you quickly locate the correct code. Several new appendices provide instant access to information such as abbreviations, ocular measurements, trade and generic names of commonly prescribed drugs, and common Spanish phrases. Includes a free 6-month subscription to FIRST Consult an online clinical diagnostic and decision-making tool that helps you treat more patients, more effectively, in less time.
