Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology is a comprehensive guide to the discipline that will servet he needs of most trainees...It provides a succinct approach to the major subspecialties within ophthalmology...One of the many appealing attributes of this book is its clear presentation with concise tables, algorithms and abundant cross referencing. Aimed at junior ophthalmologist are several sections covering clinical skills and investigations, and an extensive therapeutics section is also included...It is the first English publication to rival the Will's Eye Manual in content and application to clinical ophthalmology; the user-friendly format, focal clinical information and the compact size of the handbook compensate for any sacrifices made and make it a highly desirable companion."—British Journal of Hospital Medicine
