Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Margaret Amy Chang, MD, MS (Johns Hopkins Hospital)
Description: The long-awaited third edition of Spalton's acclaimed Atlas of Clinical Ophthalmology is a comprehensive collection of beautiful photographs, illustrations, and well-written, clinically relevant text. The CD-ROM, which enables easy access to digital images, is a welcome addition to this edition, which has been 11 years in the making.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose of this atlas is to form a collection of high-quality photographs and illustrations of clinical significance likely to be encountered in clinical practice. Certainly, such a collection is indispensable for all ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents, whether in general or subspecialty practice. This atlas is superb. General and exotic conditions are given the appropriate amount of detail, and the gorgeous photographs are accompanied by helpful explanatory illustrations and well-written text.
Audience: This atlas is indispensable for all ophthalmologists at every level. The authors have tailored the text and illustrations to general ophthalmologists, but the atlas is easily used by residents, fellows, and practicing ophthalmologists. The authors are certainly among the most highly respected in the field.
Features: This revised third edition builds on the basic framework and photographic collection of its preceding two editions, and covers all areas of ophthalmology in thorough detail. Like previous editions, a major strength of this atlas is that almost all photographs are accompanied by detailed explanatory drawings that clearly demonstrate each clinical finding. Correlations made between clinical photographs, histopathologic findings, and imaging modalities are particularly helpful, and enable deeper comprehension of the pathophysiology of disease. Along with significant text revision and expansion of useful tables, new photographs have been added. These include newer imaging modalities such as HRT, OCT, confocal microscopy, and anterior ultrasound biomicroscopy. The CD-ROM is invaluable, and is the highlight of this third edition. It features a user-friendly interface that allows easy access to illustrations through keyword and chapter search functions. Exporting files to HTML and Powerpoint presentations is a snap. Individual images can be compiled into collections that are easily saved for future reference.
Assessment: This is a gorgeous pedagogic tool that is unmatched in photographic quality and clarity of illustrations. This gem is greatly enhanced by the user-friendly CD-ROM that enables easy incorporation of digital images into presentation formats. It is a "must-have" for any reference shelf.

"The atlas contains an excellent compendium of clinical pictures, slit-lamp photos, photomicrographs, electron micrographs and illustrations spanning a wide spectrum of ophthalmic topics. A CD-ROM is included with the book and contains not only the illustrations from the atlas, but also useful internet links. ... This atlas is a welcome reference for any ophthalmologist's library." —Ocular Surgery News, August 1, 2005

"It is a bounty of superbly chosen photographs... This atlas is unsurpassed in its representational clarity... A definite visual feast, this book is a prize for any bookshelf." - American Journal of Ophthalmology, review of the previous edition

"It is always easy to find criticism of a book is one looks hard enough. In this book it seems pointless... It is a superb atlas and I strongly recommend it as a pictorial addition to every clinician's library." - Clinical & Experimental Optometry, review of the previous edition

First edition: Winner of the Abbott Prize for Medical Writing

John W. Chandler
This extensively illustrated atlas combines brief, pertinent descriptions of all aspects of clinical ophthalmology with concise descriptions of methods of examination and the biological basis of clinical entities. This second edition is an extensive revision and expansion of the first edition, which was published almost a decade ago. It is intended as an introduction to clinical ophthalmology for residents in the specialty, with special emphasis on the recognition of clinical signs and a subsequent appreciation of their pathophysiological basis. These are important objectives, especially for the beginning resident who is seeking to rapidly expand his or her knowledge base. The style and quality of the book allow the authors to meet their objectives. The book is appropriately targeted for ophthalmology residents, but it is also useful for medical students (especially if they are considering ophthalmology as a career choice) and ophthalmologists who find that the approach of the book fits their learning style. The authors are superb teachers, and the book is an excellent educational medium. The color photographs of clinical entities, pathological specimens, and radiological studies are combined with useful figures and line drawings. The photographs are of very good quality and show excellent examples of disease processes. The authors suggest texts rather than provide specific references. The book is attractive and easy to use. Medical libraries and libraries of ophthalmology departments should have this book on their shelves. Ophthalmology residents should look over this atlas several times during their training. It is filled with clear descriptions and illustrations of clinical entities,methods to observe them, and their pathophysiological basis.

    Stellar textbook

    This book is probably the most important ophthalmology text you'll ever purchase. The photo quality is amazing, with diagrams carefully labeling essential features of each figure. The text is top-notch, and as whole incredibely comprehensive. Reading this book cover to cover gives one a very solid understanding of ophthalmolgy with pleasant visual inputs, and takes only a few days. It is also (visually) a gorgeous installment for any coffee table.
