The Epidemiology of Eye Disease
3rd Edition

Hardback Book (668 Pages)
March 2012
This unique book is a comprehensive coverage of the epidemiology of the world's major blinding eye diseases, written by internationally acclaimed experts in each field. Edited by world-renowned epidemiologists and ophthalmologists, the chapters on each leading cause of blindness describe its biology, epidemiology, risk factors, clinical trials, possibilities for prevention, and new research avenues. New chapters include Research Synthesis, Epidemiology of Dry Eye Disease, and Epidemiology of Uveitis, as well as programme issues for reaching the goal of eliminating avoidable blindness by 2020.

This book is essential for any eye care practitioner interested in the causation or prevention of disease, and should be part of any public health discipline's library with a focus on improving eye health worldwide.
