Overview

In Focus Ophthalmology is aimed at all medical and health science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated guide to this specialty. The material is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management; prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs.
Ophthalmology In Focus is a convenient pocket size and therefore ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds. Each volume also includes self-assessment material, which is extremely helpful for preparation for examinations.
Because of shorter hospital stays and more outpatient treatment, students are less likely to be able to see the full range of conditions on the ward - the books in this series help supply that deficit.

• Invaluable source of clinical photographs - students are now less able to be have the opportunity to see - in real life - the full range of conditions that they are expected to know about and that they may be tested on
• Synoptic structured text - ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds
• Includes self-assessment material - picture tests - handy for revision, especially for the all-important 'OSCE'

• New series name: In Focus

• New series design

• Test revised to include more on management

• Picture tests included in each volume for first time

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The In Focus series are useful 'trigger texts' i.e. they give enough information so that you want to read further or continue your learning on the internet. The colours have been used nicely, with realistic print colours of patients, instruments and slides. The set out of the books are ideal with good, quick refernce contents, making the series ideal for students in Clinics and/or ward rounds."
Medical Student, UK, January 2005

It is pleasing to stumble upon an ophthalmology book that is...as user-friendly as a 'Crash Course'. The 'In Focus' book benefits from both its accessible approach and inclusion of several peri-orbital conditions, which link in well to general medicine.
