The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, as well as for surgical assistants, opticians, plus low vision, and contact lens examiners.
Beginning with embryology, a topic rarely covered, this text covers each structure of the eye including; The Bony Orbit; Eyebrows, Eyelids, and the Lacrimal System; and Extraocular Muscles and the Globe. In addition to explaining the anatomy of the structure, the physiology of various structures, systems are also explained, including the visual pathway, the inflammatory response, immunology, binocular vision, refractive errors, and accommodation. Emphasis is on normal anatomy and function, which will help the reader recognize abnormal situations.
