Product Details

Paediatric care has changed dramatically in the last few years and this has affected the care and management of ophthalmic patients. Babies and children with ophthalmic problems are often cared for by registered childrenís nurses in specialist childrenís hospitals. However, some of these nurses may lack the required ophthalmic knowledge and expertise. Likewise, paediatric patients are also often cared for in ophthalmic environments, where the ophthalmic nurses donít necessarily possess the same level of paediatric knowledge as their colleagues in childrenís hospitals.


This useful, comprehensive book bridges the gap, presenting the core information required by both groups: paediatric nurses who care for ophthalmic patients, and ophthalmic nurses who look after children in their practice.


Contents include:

  • Working with the child and their family
  • Development of the eye and vision
  • Gross anatomy and physiology of the eye and adnexa
  • Assessment of vision and eye movement
  • Examination of the eye and adnexa
  • Eye conditions, inherited and acquired
  • Eye emergencies

  • Statutory and voluntary support for visually impaired children and their families
