The Eye in General Practice.

The Eye in General Practice. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This small volume which is written for the general practitioner contains much valuable information. It is divided into three parts. In the first twelve chapters, the diseases of the eye are considered in a brief but clear manner. The section devoted to "The Watery Eye" is particularly well done. In the second part, consisting of five chapters, the ocular findings in cardiovascular, intracranial, and endocrine and metabolic diseases are briefly outlined. The final part is devoted to a discussion on the welfare of the blind and the National Health Ophthalmic Service—topics which will be of little interest to the American reader. This manual can be heartily recommended as a simple introduction to ophthalmology, for in it the medical student and general practitioner will find concise descriptions of most of the more common ocular conditions he will encounter. It is inexpensive, clearly printed, and well illustrated. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
