This handbook of ophthalmic nursing standards and procedures has been developed to assist healthcare professionals working in a wide range of ophthalmic settings, and also to provide the patient with safe and consistent ophthalmic nursing care. Ophthalmic care is constantly changing and progressing, with new technical roles being introduced all the time. The authors discovered within their own unit that new healthcare professionals, both registered and non-registered, were often shown slightly different ways of doing things by more experienced members of the team, which led to confusion. They felt it was a bit like driving; bad habits can easily slip into everyday practice. For this reason, they developed standards of care to act as a benchmark for the ophthalmic practitioner. Written in response to a widely expressed need for greater clarity and consistency, this highly regarded book offers a comprehensive one-stop resource for all ophthalmic practitioners, whether they are registered nurses, healthcare assistants or ophthalmic technicians. This new edition has been revised to make the text even clearer and bring all the guidance up to date, covering communication, visual acuity testing, ocular medications, the ophthalmic outpatient department, biometry, the ophthalmic accident and emergency department, the slit lamp and tonometry, additional standards using specific equipment, and suggested documentation for providing evidence of development and competence. Sections include: Communication Visual Acuity Testing Ocular Medications The Ophthalmic Outpatient Department Biometry The Ophthalmic Accident and Emergency Department Slit Lamp and Tonometry Additional Standards Using Specific Equipment Next Steps Using Standards

The slit lamp is an instrument consisting of a high-intensity light source that can be focused to shine a thin sheet of light into the eye. It is used in conjunction with a biomicroscope. The lamp facilitates an examination of the anterior segment, or frontal structures and posterior segment of the eye. The binocular slit-lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions. This book is a concise guide to slit-lamp biomicroscopy for trainees. Beginning with an overview of the technique, the following chapters provide in depth discussion on the slit-lamp biomicroscope, its magnification ranges, patient positioning and illumination techniques. The final section covers its clinical application as a diagnostic tool for both anterior and posterior segment conditions of the eye. Presented in a step by step format, each method is described beginning with its background, then application, grading of abnormality and interpretation. Key points Concise guide to slit-lamp biomicroscopy for trainees In depth coverage of technicalities of the slit-lamp biomicroscope Describes clinical application as diagnostic tool for eye conditions Includes more than 75 images and illustrations to enhance learning
