Reviewer: Christopher B Chambers, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a popular manual to help physicians identify, work up, diagnose, and treat patients with ocular disease. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: A very thorough and comprehensive manual, it does an excellent job of noting the salient points of diagnosis, work-up, treatment, and follow-up.
Audience: This manual is unique in medicine, as it is useful for a wide range of practitioners in any stage of their careers — students, residents, and attending physicians. It is a valuable resource for emergency room physicians, general practitioners, pediatricians, optometrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and ophthalmologists.
Features: The book covers an extensive amount of ocular pathology that is easy to understand and follow. The format is well designed and standard throughout the book. It does an excellent job of walking practitioners through symptoms, signs, work-up, treatment, and follow-up. The images provide visual support to aid in diagnosis.
Assessment: The Wills Eye Manual has been widely successful since it was first published in 1990. It is an exceptional book and a wonderful tool for almost any medical professional. It is well written, comprehensive, and easy to understand. This excellent manual stands without peer among its contemporaries.
