Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Three British ophthalmologists provide assistance for candidates during the revision period leading to postgraduate exams, emphasizing that the point of the clinical examinations is to demonstrate an ability to elicit physical signs and make sensible inferences, not to diagnose every rarity. They begin by demonstrating how to examine the systems of the eye rigorously, then present a series of illustrated medical and surgical conditions that involved the eye. For each case, they clearly define the disorder, list key clinical aspects, and end with a series of typical examination questions and a model comprehensive answer. Annotation c.
