Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This is an updated English translation of a book that was originally published in Italian. In addition to covering the fundamentals of topography, this 535-page book shows the topographic features of case after clinical case, many of which include surgical intervention.
Purpose: The authors use clinical cases to demonstrate the topographical features of various entities and perturbations in topography in association with surgical interventions. Each chapter begins with a short didactic description to help guide the reader. The senior author states the view that corneal topography is a key methodology in ophthalmic diagnosis and in planning the correct surgical procedure in a wide variety of conditions.
Audience: The atlas is written for ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents with an intense interest in corneal topography. The author list includes two American experts in topography and the senior author with vast experience in the subject along with many of his colleagues.
Features: The book is loaded with color topographical maps. Except for the introductory chapters, the book is devoid of references. It also lacks an index. Most pages consist of a short clinical case description and one or more colored topographical maps.
Assessment: The atlas is useful for readers interested in viewing large numbers of maps but is not particularly helpful for an introduction to corneal topography. In addition, some of the narrative is not convincing with regard to the purported diagnosis and pathogenesis of some of the clinical conditions.
