Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vivian Lee, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: Now referred to as Kanski and Bowling Clinical Ophthalmology, this classic textbook should be required reading at the beginning of any ophthalmology residency. It provides a general overview of ophthalmic diseases and pertinent surgical approaches encountered by all ophthalmologists in training, using a great balance between text and outline format, along with fantastic images.
Purpose: The purpose is to lay down a foundation in ophthalmic diseases and relevant procedures for ophthalmologists to build upon. Approaching a whole field that is rarely taught in depth during medical school is a daunting task, but this book provides an imaginary file cabinet that is organized in such a way that readers can start gathering and storing information as they progress through the field.
Audience: The book is ideal for ophthalmologists in training, usually at the start of residency. However, it is also helpful for practicing ophthalmologists as a quick resource, especially in constructing lectures or presentations. Dr. Kanski is a renowned ophthalmologist with a long tradition of providing one of the top textbooks in ophthalmology. With the addition of Dr. Bowling, the textbook remains at the top of any list of books a resident should have.
Features: The book is divided into chapters that correspond to the slit lamp and fundus exams. Each chapter then highlights the most important disease processes within a structure, while providing practical pointers. The combination format of short text and outline is a great way to relay lots of information in a quick and efficient manner. The images and tables are the highlights. This is an essential characteristic, especially in a field that is visually oriented. The index also is nicely constructed.
Assessment: This is a great textbook that should be read by all residents. It provides a great foundation they can build upon with more in-depth reading. Although the field is constantly changing, the principles are always applicable, and should be appreciated by all who are in ophthalmology.
