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.

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
