520    In the context of an ageing population, visual impairment 
       is having an increasing social and economic impact. This 
       timely book will enable healthcare professionals in a 
       diverse range of settings to enhance their expertise in 
       assessing the ophthalmic conditions of the elderly, adopt 
       a holistic approach to patient care, and improve their 
       ability to deal with organisational challenges involving 
       visually impaired elderly people. Sue Watkinson and her co
       -authors have used their broad professional and academic 
       knowledge to analyse issues relating to the major ocular 
       diseases affecting the elderly. These include cataract, 
       age-related macular degeneration, chronic open-angle 
       glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, herpes zoster ophthalmicus
       and dementia. In addition to describing the pathogenesis, 
       clinical features and risk factors for each disease, they 
       highlight the role of specialist ophthalmic nurses in 
       informing and educating patients, managing ophthalmic 
       treatment procedures, promoting safe environments and 
       maintaining quality of life for elderly individuals 
       suffering from age-related ophthalmic conditions. Above 
       all, the authors show that providing the right care for 
       this vulnerable group of people in our society will help 
       reduce the economic and psychological burden of sight loss
       and re-establish a good quality of life for the older 
       person with visual impairment
