This illustrated book, like other volumes in the "Decision Making" series, addresses clinical decision-making in an algorithmic format. It is a concise approach to the diagnosis of ophthalmologic problems and issues concerning the paediatric patient.
The format encourages the reader to think systematically and follow a logical sequence through the steps of diagnostic and therapeutic decisions. Brief text accompanies each algorithm, explaining the significance of important decision points.
The focus of each chapter is its decision tree, an algorithm that demonstrates critical decision points in paediatric ophthalmologic patient care and their logical results. It highlights proven effective methods of treatment and includes the latest advances in the treatment of corneal disorders, glaucoma and intraocular pressure problems, retinal and vitreous disorders, lens disorders, uveitis, neuroophthalmic disorders, blepharitis, and others.
