Abstract
This reader-friendly and well-illustrated book is a concise clinical reference on the management of severe ocular injuries. It will serve as an ideal guide for clinicians dealing with trauma and ophthalmology, assisting in the implementation of individualized treatment strategies and the performance of up-to-date surgical interventions. Easy-to-follow instructions are provided on the management of each injured tissue of the globe, with emphasis on key pearls and pitfalls that must be borne in mind in order to achieve an optimal anatomical and functional outcome. Both common and rare causes of injury are covered, including mass casualty incidents, and current concepts regarding the evaluation and classification of injury mechanisms are fully taken into consideration. In addition, each chapter pays special attention to hot topics and medicolegal issues in patient management. Current Concepts and Management of Eye Injuries will provide practitioners and clinicians with core messages and clear guidance on how to deal with ocular trauma.

Abstract
This book provides emergency physicians with an easy-to-use guide for diagnosing and treating ophthalmologic conditions in the emergency department. Ophthalmologic complaints are very common, but many emergency physicians are not as confident as they would like to be when evaluating and managing these conditions. This book answers that need by giving step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose and treat common eye conditions, including glaucoma, infections, neuro-ophthalmologic conditions, and trauma. For each disorder, the book discusses presentation/symptoms, physical examination techniques, lab and imaging findings, differential diagnoses, treatment guidelines, and referral suggestions. The text is filled with images that clearly present these common ophthalmologic complaints and conditions and guide the emergency physician to an accurate and swift diagnosis. Handbook of Emergency Ophthalmology is an essential resource for emergency physicians, residents, medical students, nurses, and other healthcare workers who evaluate and manage patients with ophthalmologic conditions.

Abstract
Trauma to the eye and associated structures account for a significant number of combat-related injuries, and combat ocular trauma has steadily risen in frequency over the last century. Ophthalmology in Military and Civilian Casualty Care comprehensively examines the accommodations and modifications that must be made in order to treat such ocular traumas in a military setting. Created by ophthalmology experts actively serving in the military at various levels, this book is designed to improve ophthalmic casualty outcomes across military settings. A history of military ophthalmology serves as the opening chapter, setting the stage for subsequent chapters examining the intricacies and advancements of damage control ophthalmology, prehospital care of combat eye injuries, neuro-ophthalmic manifestations of trauma, and further severe ocular conditions. Later chapters explore the preventative and proactive efforts to reduce and treat combat-related ocular trauma by developing “eye armor” for the American infantry and military-affiliated ophthalmic surgical missions. Complete with high-quality color illustrations and figures, this unique book will serve as an invaluable, practical reference for military physicians, military ophthalmologists, ophthalmology professors, residents, and fellows interested in combat medicine and eye trauma.
