Overview

The authors' constant interactions with medical students in the classroom, on the hospital ward, and in oral examinations ever since this pocket atlas first appeared in English 2001 have enabled them to update both the text and the illustrations for this new English edition. Like its predecessor, the 2nd edition provides a concise, thorough and up-to-date introduction to the field of ophthalmology. Medical students on ophthalmology rotations, as well as beginning residents, will find it an invaluable companion on the ward and a useful aid for test preparation. Fully trained physicians and other health professionals, too, will be able to use it for a self-taught refresher course in ophthalmology.

The special features of this book include:

  • More than 500 clear, well-drawn illustrations and color photographs illustrating clinical findings, disease pathophysiology, and more
  • Many new illustrations since the previous edition reflecting the latest developments in the field, particularly in the chapters on the retina and the cornea
  • A new appendix containing correlations between clinical findings and the latest examining techniques, as well as a guide to visual field defects
  • Comprehensive presentation of examining techniques
  • An expanded glossary and a copiously illustrated table of important anatomical structures
  • A convenient and comprehensive table of cardinal manifestations of disease with associated findings, probable diagnoses, and suggestions for diagnostic work-up
  • Clearly and consistently organized chapters on all major diseases

Just as in the 1st edition, the individual chapters are organized to maximize their usefulness as a teaching tool:

  • Each chapter begins with the relevant basic concepts in anatomy and physiology
  • All diseases are consistently presented in accordance with clinical logic: first the symptoms, then the examination findings, then the diagnosis
  • The diseases are both described in words and shown in didactically useful illustrations

Understand the entire field of ophthalmology with this compact, beautifully illustrated text!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A great book...photos and drawings are excellent and illustrate common disease presentations, anatomy, surgical basics, examination techniques, and imaging/testing concepts in a very clear manner...best geared to the ophthalmic professional.—Doody's Book Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Naureen A Mirza-George, MD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of book that provides an overview of all major topics in ophthalmology. The sections are broken down by different anatomical areas of the eye, and further into disease entities. In addition, sections cover the ocular examination and optics as well. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: It is intended as a quick pocket reference for students and physicians in the clinic and on the wards. This is a worthy objective given that there are very few pocket-sized references available in ophthalmology. Those that are available are geared towards the non-ophthalmologist and tend to be too simplistic. This book provides the necessary information needed for a quick reference for students/residents, as well as a review for practicing ophthalmologists.
Audience: The book is written for students, residents, practitioners (including, but not limited to, ophthalmologists), according to the author.
Features: Anatomy, examination techniques, essential imaging/testing, optics, and diagnosis and management of specific disease entities are all addressed. The illustrations are phenomenal and add tremendous value to the reading experience. They very clearly demonstrate what is written, with appropriate arrows/legends for clarification. The tables also provide organization to various important concepts, but are not overused as they are in some overview books. Readers should note that while this book provides a basic overview, it should not be used as a comprehensive board/test review.
Assessment: This is a great book to have in the clinic. It describes practical examination and diagnostic techniques. It breaks topics down into the basics so that users can quickly reference it without having to turn to large, unwieldy textbooks. The photos and drawings are excellent and illustrate common disease presentations, anatomy, surgical basics, examination techniques, and imaging/testing concepts in a very clear manner. Compared to other pocket references, this is the most comprehensive and best geared to the ophthalmic professional that I have seen.
