Overview

This text is part of the Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Ophthalmology which was developed at Philadelphia’s famed Wills Eye Institute.  The beauty of this series is the powerful combination of illustrative photographs and a summary approach to the text.  While the seven ophthalmic subspecialties in this series, Cornea, Retina, Glaucoma, Oculoplastics, Neuroophthalmology, Pediatrics, and Uveiti, employ varying levels of visual recognition, a relatively standard format for the text is used for all volumes.  The goal of the series is to provide an up-to-date clinical overview of the major areas of ophthalmology for students, residents, and practitioners in all the healthcare professions. 

Pediatric Ophthalmology was written in an effort to provide practicing ophthalmologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, and residents in training with a concise update of the clinical findings and the most recent treatment available for a wide spectrum of childhood ocular diseases. The atlas format should provide readers with a clear and succinct outline of the disease entities and stimulate a more detailed pursuit of the specific ocular disorders.  The book features more than 150 4-color illustrations throughout and a short, succinct format which includes: Epidemiology and Etiology, History, Physical Examination, Differential Diagnosis, Laboratory and Special Examinations, Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Management.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jasleen Singh, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a good, quick summary of diseases in pediatric ophthalmology with many pictures.
Purpose: It is intended as an easy and brief outline of pediatric diseases.
Audience: The target audience includes pediatric ophthalmologists, general ophthalmologists, and residents. It is ideal for residents on a pediatric rotation or for general ophthalmologists refreshing their memory on pediatric diseases. However, it may just skim the surface for pediatric ophthalmologists.
Features: The book covers each subspecialty in pediatric ophthalmology, including strabismus. The way the book simplifies the topics and includes photographs explaining the diseases is very helpful. Each topic includes a clear discussion of etiology, history, signs/symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment/prognosis. This is a good quick reference guide in pediatric ophthalmology, however, a little brief at times (but at the goal of the author).
Assessment: I really enjoyed this book. It is a great reference for someone who is not trained in pediatric ophthalmology. It is easy to navigate and highlights important topics in each chapter. I have not seen a book like this in a subspecialty, but it mimics The Wills Eye Manual: Office and Emergency Room Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Disease, 5th edition, Ehlers and Shah (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008).
