Taking Care of Your Eyes Eye diseases & conditions explained: examination, treatment, complications

TAKING CARE OF YOUR EYES

A Collection of the Patient Education Handouts Used by America's Leading Eye Doctors

Melvin L. Rubin, M.D.
Lawrence A. Winograd, M.D.

Taking Care of Your Eyes can help, when your eye doctor hasn't told you everything you want to know. It's a collection of what many doctors give their patients, to explain the eye conditions that may be affecting you and your family. You will find out:

A basic understanding of the disorder.
How the eye is examined.
What to expect, from examination through treatment.
Treatment options.
Complications that could arise.

Two eye specialists have written useful, practical information about common as well as not-so-common eye diseases and disorders, and what you can expect -- from examination through treatment, and afterward.

The more you learn about a condition -- one you suffer from or are threatened by -- the better you'll be able to care for yourself. You will be able to make more informed decisions, communicate better with your doctor, be more responsive to the signals your body sends you, make decisions more confidently.

Each topic is explained simply and accurately. This is a comprehensive reference, to help you care for your eyes and protect your vision.
