Vaughan & Asbury’s General Ophthalmology, 19th Edition

The 19th edition of Vaughan & Asbury’s General Ophthalmology has been released, and Dr. Charles has a chapter in the textbook titled “Vitreous”.

Introduction to Chapter 9, “Vitreous”:
During the past four decades, there has been an explosion of interest in the vitreous due to the development of vitreoretinal surgery. Previously large numbers of patients were blinded by vitreoretinal diseases. One goal of this chapter is to help the medical student, intern, resident, general ophthalmologist, and optometrist become aware of the indications for vitreoretinal surgery, many of which are time sensitive. Many vitreoretinal conditions have implications for the family medical practitioner, internist, and emergency physician.

For nearly six decades, Vaughan & Asbury’s General Ophthalmology has offered authoritative, state-of-the-art coverage of the diagnosis and treatment of all major ophthalmic diseases, as well as neurological and systemic diseases causing visual disturbances. It is recognized world wide as essential reading for medical students, ophthalmology residents, practicing ophthalmologists, nurses, optometrists, clinicians in other fields of medicine and surgery, as well as those in health-related professions.

The Nineteenth Edition builds on this tradition of excellence by offering a new full-color presentation, an increased number of color photos, and cutting-edge content additions and updates – to deliver all-inclusive coverage that encompasses pathophysiology, basic science, and the latest clinical perspectives.

The most authoritative review of the subject:

• 25 chapters that span the full breadth of ophthalmic disease
