Updated to include new material for beginners in ophthalmology and optometry, Ocular Anatomy and Physiology, Second Edition is an essential text that covers a range of fundamental information for students and clinicians.

With collaborations from Al Lens, Sheila Coyne Nemeth, and Janice K. Ledford, Ocular Anatomy and Physiology, Second Edition now begins with a jump-start chapter to overview the topic for those new to the field of eye care. Chapter two delves into embryology--a topic rarely covered--and addresses each structure of the eye, including the bony orbit, eyebrows, eye lids, lacrimal system, extraocular muscles, and the globe.

While the text continues to emphasize normal anatomy, each chapter contains a glossary of common disorders. Also included is a description of diagnostic methods for examining various tissues. The physiology of various structures and systems is explained, including the visual pathway, the inflammatory response, immunology, binocular vision, refractive errors, and accommodation. To enhance the reader's understanding of each topic, illustrations are provided.

Features of the Second Edition:
New jump-start chapter for beginners
Details on diagnostic methods for each structure or segment, including optical coherence tomography and retinal thickness analysis
Glossary of common disorders at the end of each chapter

With new features and information, Ocular Anatomy and Physiology, Second Edition is a valuable text for ophthalmic and optometric assistants, training facilities, and practices, as well as beginners in the field of eye care, including sales representatives and pre-med students.
