Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M Vaughn Emerson, MD (Johns Hopkins Hospital)
Description: This is a pocket-size practical guide that briefly summarizes the recognition, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and initial management (and need for referral) of ocular disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide primary care clinicians with the tools to recognize and either manage or refer patients with ocular disease to the appropriate specialist. This is an entirely noble goal and the book provides an excellent framework for primary care clincians to formulate an understanding of the diagnosis of and urgency of specialty referral of ocular conditions.
Audience: The book is written for all nonophthalmology specialists, but it may benefit most studentd and residents who are most unfamiliar with the appearance of ocular disease. Jonathan Traube's credentials as Director of the Kellog Eye Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Richard Hackel's expertise at ophthalmic photography make them a perfect duo for the creation of this work.
Features: The book provides color photos of classic examples of clinical findings in ophthalmic disease and provides descriptions of the findings, workup, differential diagnosis, initial management, and natural history/outcome of a range of common ocular diseases. Although the book is brief and omits several topics that each encompass volumes of text in the ophthalmic literature, it does so by design and effectively eliminates all material that is unnecessary for the nonophthalmologist. In this sense, this guide provides a method for clinicians to quickly triage patients with ocular conditions into those with relatively benign conditions and those patients who need immediate therapy or referral to an ophthalmologist.
Assessment: The book is a useful and manageable resource for the general practitioner.
From The Critics
Following James Audubon's guide for recognizing birds, Trobe and Hackel (both Kellogg Eye Center, U. of Michigan-Ann Arbor) present one or more classic photographs of 81 eye conditions and tell what each is, what it looks like, what else looks like it, diagnosis, management, outcome, and when to refer to a specialist.
