Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary K. Daly, MD (Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a clinical textbook of eye disorders (last edition, 1994), with descriptions and illustrations of ocular disorders and their signs, associations, and treatments.
Purpose: The purpose is "to provide the trainee with a systematic and easily assimilated introduction to ophthalmology, and a reference and update for the more experienced practitioner." This is a basic and brief introduction to ophthalmological disorders. The illustrations are fantastic. The discussions of disorders are short and to the point; however, they are less detailed than they could be, at times, for the practitioner.
Audience: This book was written, according to the author, for the trainee, and as a reference update for the more experienced practitioner. The level of detail of the written text seems geared toward the student/resident. The pictures and illustrations are excellent and are a good referential learning tool for the trainee and the clinician.
Features: This is a general introduction to clinical ophthalmology organized by disorders, starting with the eyelid and ending with trauma of the eye. The disorders and their signs, associations, and treatments are discussed. This is a very organized introduction to important eye diseases with magnificent illustrations. The photographs are quite impressive and clearly presented. The entries are brief and, perhaps, lack detail of interest to particular readers. The index is not as user-friendly as it could be.
Assessment: I recommend this text for trainees in and clinicians of ophthalmology. The illustrations provided could be a great addition for any practitioner of ophthalmology. The brevity of the written text pertaining to each disorder is useful as a quick reference for the client, but this brevity limits the usefulness of this text as a sole reference.
Kanski, a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor, UK, jumps right into eye disorders, foregoing any basic anatomy chapters, beginning with disorders of the eyelids. Other chapters include discussions of conjuctiva, lens, and cornea disorders, as well as glaucoma, uveitis, intraocular tumors, retinal detachment, and neuro-ophthalmology. Illustrated with hundreds of color photos and drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
