Eye Diseases in Hot Climates, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of eye diseases in hot or tropical countries. This book examines the features of basic eye care, including careful planning, cost effectiveness, mobility, cooperation between various sciences, methods and resources, and an emphasis on prevention. Organized into 20 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the various causes of eye diseases in hot, tropical, or developing countries. This text then examines the basic structure of the eye, which consists of three layers of tissue, namely, an outer protective layer, a middle layer of blood vessels, pigment cell and muscle fibers, and the retina. Other chapters consider the clinical methods needed to assess a patient with eye disease. This book discusses as well the various types of eye diseases, including, conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, retinal degenerations, and vascular retinopathies. The final chapter deals with loss of vision. This book is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists.
