Practical and easy-to-read, this point-of-care reference provides a succinct, clinical overview of eye anatomy, disease, and treatment. Unlike many ophthalmic handbooks, OPHTHO NOTES classifies disease based upon etiology, rather than presenting signs and symptoms. This classification helps to compartmentalize diseases of the eye, and ensures quick and effortless reference.
