Sight is perhaps the most important of the senses, and many patients who consult their doctor or optometrist with a visual disturbance have a genuine fear of blindness and need comprehensible reassurance.

Examination of the eye can reveal local problems, such as a cataract or glaucoma, but can also provide evidence of medical conditions including high blood pressure and diabetes. The aim of this book is to help healthcare professionals explain these conditions and their treatments simply and clearly to their patients, with the aid of informative diagrams and concise explanatory notes.
