Summary The completely revised, Third Edition of Ocular Therapeutics Handbook is directed at the needs of optometrists, nurses, and primary care physicians and provides information for the most common ocular problems encountered in a primary care setting. The handbook is divided into three sections: Quick Reference, Ocular Therapeutics, and Appendices. The Quick Reference section covers such topic: as ocular microbiology, laboratory tests and procedures, pharmaceutical agents, and side effects of medications. The Ocular Therapeutics section discusses diseases, traumatic injuries, and ocular urgencies and emergencies, as well as in-office systemic emergencies. The Appendices provide a summary of abbreviations, conversion charts, case report sheets, and important phone numbers. The chapters have been developed to serve as a snapshot, presenting the clinician with the most relevant information regarding the pathophysiology and etiology of diseases, patient demographics, signs and symptoms, laboratory tests, and recommended approaches to treatment.
