Brief Introduction

The 7th edition of the Comprehensive Opthalmology textbook is a complete guide to the diagnosis and management of ocular disorders.

The text has been reorganised into six key sections – Anatomy and Physiology, Optics and Refraction, Diseases of the Eye and Ocular Adnexa, Ocular Therapeutics, Systemic and Community Ophthalmology, and Practical Ophthalmology.

The seventh edition has been fully revised with many new topics added to cover the latest advances in the field.

Nearly 1000 clinical photographs, diagrams and tables further enhance the text.   

The accompanying free book ‘Review of Ophthalmology’ provides multiple choice questions (MCQs) commonly encountered in examinations, to assist revision.

Development of the eyeballs can he considered to commence around day 22 when the e mbryo has eight pairs of so mites and is around 2 mm in length. Eyeball and its related sLruc1urcs arc derived from the following primordia:1,OpLic vesicle, an outgrowth from prosencephalon (a neuroectodermal structure),2,Lens placode, a special ized area of surface ectoderm, and the surrounding surface ectoderm,3,Mcsenchyme surrounding the optic vesicle, 4,Visceral mesoderm of maxillary processes.Before going into the development of individual structure, it will be h elpful to understand the formation of optic vesicle, lens placodc, optic cup and changes in the surrounding mesenchyme, which play a major role in the developmem of the eye and its related structures.
