Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Horatio S Eustis, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The fifth edition of this book continues in the tradition of excellence which has made it a well-respected reference in pediatric ophthalmology. The book attempts to cover the subject with exquisite detail in 587 pages. Changes include new chapters on medical- legal issues, neonatal ophthalmology, and an expanded update on genetic issues.
Purpose: This would serve as a useful reference for general ophthalmologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, and pediatricians faced with a child with an unusual ocular problem. This edition does indeed meet the objective, which was to update the book with the explosion of new developments and procedures in the management of pediatric ocular disorders.
Audience: This book is written for pediatric ophthalmologists or general ophthalmologists with a special interest in pediatric ophthalmic disorders. It should be viewed as a reference guide for those situations which require detailed information on a particular disorder. It would be a welcome addition to any ophthalmic library. In this latest edition, the editors have rightly included some of the younger leaders in the field as contributors.
Features: This is truly a soup-to-nuts coverage of pediatric ophthalmology. In addition to the traditional coverage of strabismus, anterior segment and posterior segment disease, the addition of developmental anomalies, medical legal issues, and the interesting and innovative chapter on evolution of strabismus surgery are welcome topics. The color plates in the front of the book are of high quality and represent both commonplace and unusual pediatric ophthalmology disorders captured in high quality color pictures. One shortcoming is the lack of color pictures in the main body of the book. It would have been nice to see certain retinal disorders depicted in color photographs. Similarly, the description of new diagnostic technologies, such as ocular coherence tomography (OCT) is lacking. The one OCT picture is in black and white and of poor quality.
Assessment: This is a classic reference. After five editions, it still provides a comprehensive, concise compilation of clinical information. In comparison with other books on this subject, the editors have maintained an excellent group of contributing authors and current information. The section on strabismus is not as comprehensive as in comparable books and the inclusion of color photographs, where appropriate, would be a welcome improvement. With this said, Harley's still remains the classic reference on pediatric ophthalmology.
