DescriptionBased on Dr. Wright’s classic major reference, Handbook of Pediatric Eye and Systemic Disease outlines the latest findings in diagnosing children's eye diseases and their treatment options. Distilling the essentials of ocular manifestations of systemic disorders and diseases into a portable, complete and authoritative pocket reference, this handbook offers a complete picture of how to best treat pediatric patients. Specifically, the introductory chapters on the specifics of pediatric ophthalmology (embryology, post-natal development and the pediatric exam) will help newcomers to pediatric practice fully grasp the subtle differences in pediatric care. The chapters are written by leading experts in the field and are presented in a user-friendly format, relying on heavily illustrated color plates, clinically helpful tables, charts, and decision-making guidelines. This approach will enable the practitioner (whether specialist or generalist) to make the most accurate diagnosis and choose the most effective treatment option.
