Ophthalmology is a rapidly expanding field and the number of patients presenting with eye problems is increasing. Common Eye Diseases and their Management presents a problem oriented approach to the diagnosis and treatment of common eye diseases. As the title suggests, the text concentrates common eye diseases which are likely to be seen by general practitioners and optometrists at the primary care level. The latest advances in treatment are described and the text is supported by many illustrations (including colour) to aid the reader. The purpose of this book is to teach basic ophthalmology to trainee ophthalmologists, optometrists, medical students and general practitioners and thus enable them to easily recognise and successfully treat these disorders when they come into contact with them
