Ophthalmology Thesaurus



Ophthalmology Thesaurus Development Notes

Purpose

The All capitalized terms are part of the controlled vocabulary and may be used for searching. Terms with a use reference appear in title case (i.e. Title Case) and are not to be used for searching. See references direct the searcher to another location in the thesaurus where the term can be found with related and/or narrower terms.


Term Selection

Concepts were identified from MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) and from the ICD-9 Code. A subject specialist was consulted regarding concept arrangement and term validity. The vocabulary in the Ophthalmology Thesaurus describes a broad spectrum of ophthalmology diseases and pathologies.
