Medical Science Books .com Medical book review:

     Clinicians involved with examinations of the eye, whether in the acute, primary care or specialist setting will find Color Atlas of Ophthalmology 2nd Edition quite useful.  One might think of this highly portable handbook as a miniature general ophthalmology text rather than a typical atlas.  There is a chapter included on ocular pharmacology as well as several chapters focused on testing and common surgical procedures.

     The photographs and imaging figures are of the highest quality.  This would be expected of any atlas on the market.  That being said, it is important to mention that the authors don’t crowd each page with illustrations at the expense of clear and concise textual explanation to go along with them. This is where many atlases tend to lose points for usefulness.  Those seeking confirmation of a diagnostic finding are often confronted by a rarely seen condition and benefit from a refresher on etiology and treatment. 

    Small enough to fit in a labcoat pocket, comprehensive enough to serve the needs of even an experienced specialist….. Color Atlas of Ophthalmology 2nd Edition is a great resource.

From the Publisher:

Featuring the clinical expertise of respected authorities in the field, the second edition of Color Atlas of Ophthalmology is a lavishly illustrated atlas designed to guide clinicians through the accurate diagnosis and appropriate management of the full range of ophthalmic disorders. For each disease or condition, the book provides full-color clinical photographs that are supplemented by succinct descriptions of symptoms, associated findings, differential diagnosis, and management.

  • Concise text and bullet-point format enables rapid reference and review of important topics
  • More than 600 new high-quality illustrations and photographs depict key concepts
  • Coverage of current medical management and surgical treatments includes discussion of the latest refractive surgery techniques and treatments for cataracts
  • Consistent presentation throughout the book enhances ease of use

    This pocket-sized atlas is a valuable resource for clinicians, residents, and students in ophthalmology, optometry, primary care, and emergency medicine.
