Given the complexity and quantity of clinical knowledge required to correctly identify and treat ocular disease, a quick reference text with high quality color images represents an invaluable resource to the busy clinician. This is neuro-ophthalmology in a shot glass - short but potent. It is all here in concentrated form - the manifestations, the disease mechanisms, the pitfalls, the practical guidelines, and the pictures.

Home Emergency Guide.

A templated, color-coded layout and differential diagnosis boxes for each condition help you make quick, accurate clinical decisions. A focus on the most common conditions encountered in practice allows you to efficiently formulate treatment plans and referrals.

This title in the Rapid Diagnosis in Ophthalmology Series presents a wealth of full-color images - along with differential diagnoses - in side-by-side page layouts to assist you in identifying a full range of retinal disorders. A templated format expedites access to the guidance you need to diagnose the most common retinal conditions - from simple to complex - encountered in practice.Coverage of cutting-edge topics including lucentis therapy for wet ARMD, Avastin therapy for macular disease, and guidance on OCT imaging, help you keep your knowledge up to date. Hundreds of full-color images present conditions as they present in real life. Common diagnostic pitfalls discuss what to look out for when making a difficult diagnosis. A templated, color-coded layout and differential diagnosis boxes for each condition help you make quick, accurate clinical decisions. A focus on the most common conditions encountered in practice allows you to efficiently formulate treatment plans and referrals.SERIES EDITORS: Jay S.

I think many of the photos aren't distinct enough to be useful. For sure this is a limitation of the print process. An answer to this might be a link to a web page available to purchasers of the book. Also, there was the traditional presentation of the red-herrings that one seldom sees in practice and not enough of the unusual "normal" variations that are sometimes stumpers to clinicians. The printed info basically is available for free at [...]

This booklet isn't helpful to me. However, I suppose it fills a niche for some clinicians.

I think this book is very useful but not the cream of the crop as far as retina books are concerned. I think a lot of the pictures are great. I love the short summaries it provides for each disease. I like this book as a secondary resource or as a quick refresher so I think it is useful for these reasons but I would not use it as solitary or primary text due to the small amount of information that it summarizes for each disease. But I like having the book and refer to it from time to time.
