Product Details

The second edition of Eye Emergencies offers an excellent up-to-date resource for anyone whose work involves dealing with acute ophthalmic presentations. The authors have used the term ‘practitioner’ to include doctors, ophthalmic nurses, emergency care practitioners, nurse practitioners, nurses in accident and emergency departments and ‘walk in’ centres and first aid workers in remote locations such as oil rigs or working in the armed services.


Aimed at readers with differing levels of confidence, skills and knowledge, Eye Emergencies will help all practitioners develop greater competence in ophthalmic emergency practice. The system of flag symbols in the margins, highlighting the diagnostic significance of symptoms described in a particular context, makes this book particularly useful for quick reference.


Contents include:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the eye
  • Initial assessment
  • Differential diagnosis of emergency eye conditions
  • Urgent eye conditions
  • Non-urgent eye conditions
  • Drugs commonly used for acute eye conditions
  • Ophthalmic pain
  • Concluding notes
  • Ophthalmic procedures
  • Glossary of ophthalmic terms
  • Index
