Primary Care of the Anterior Segment, 2nd Edition (Textbook)
Published in 1995 and reprinted numerous times through the early 2000s, this book is considered one of the classic, definitive textbooks for comprehensive anterior segment diagnosis, treatment and management. All the clinical information is organized in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) format for quick referencing and practical use. The textbook is out of hardcopy print and I am making it available electronically through this website. Each chapter (8 total) provides immediate, accessible, "in the chair" information for clinical practitioners. The textbook also includes 7 appendices referenced throughout the respective chapter programs on this website. The appendices are included at the end of each chapter program. All chapter programs include a set of self-assessment questions and answers (in Appendix 7). An extensive 20 page Subject Index is available on this website at no charge for referencing and/or downloading (as a pdf file) at the program entitled Primary Care of the Anterior Segment, 2nd Edition: SUBJECT INDEX (LINK: http://wco.easyshare.education/by/dr-louis-catania/124599/primary-care-of-the-anterior-segment-2nd-edition-subject-index).
