Text focuses on material most vital for the non-ophthalmologist. Gives strong emphasis to common disorders, their diagnosis and management, up to the point of referral. Only minimal emphasis is given to the technical diagnostic and therapeutic measures exclusive to the ophthalmologist. For primary care physicians.
Pictures and images are the keys to success in ophthalmology, and this is the first reference to combine full-color illustrations with concise clinical information, all in a pocket-sized format ideal for training and everyday practice. More than 600 clear photographs and supporting text allow the user to quickly identify, diagnose and treat virtually any commonly encountered eye disorder, making this portable book essential for both residents-in-training and practicing ophthalmologists.
Addressing all topics from medical and surgical retina, cornea, neuro-ophthalmology, tumors, inflammation, infections, and glaucoma, to basic office procedures, this comprehensive guide covers all the areas of ophthalmic practice.
We published the second edition of Ophthalmology in 2004. Now, only 5 years later, we again find that enormous advances have taken place in ophthalmic technology, genetics, and immunology, along with other areas. We continue to recognize the advantage of a complete textbook of ophthalmology in a single volume, rather than a multivolume textbook. Our major effort has been updating and keeping current the third edition. Towards this end we endeavored to delete old out-of-date material as we added new material. One of the easiest parts of a revision is adding new material; the most difficult part, but essential, is to delete the old, so as to keep the book at approximately the same size. Throughout our revision we have successfully maintained this balancing act, culminating in a finished product that is essentially the same size as the prior edition.
В этом классическом руководстве собрана обширная информация по последним хирургическим и терапевтическим методам лечения разнообразных офтальмологических заболеваний: первичной открытоугольной глаукомы, отслойки сетчатки, повышенного внутриглазного давления и др.
Данное руководство обеспечивает возможность получения фундаментальных знаний по всем разделам офтальмологии, начиная от подробных данных по анатомии и физиологии органа зрения и заканчивая новейшими сведениями о этиологии, патогенезе, клинике, диагностике и лечении глазных болезней.
Данный том представляет собой онлайн-копию одного из наиболее полных руководств по офтальмологии по состоянию на 2007 год.
The next four yearswere devoted to intensive study of this subject.We did not merely intend to design a book according to the maxims “understand it in medical school,” “learn it for the examination,” and “use it during your internship.”
Our broader goal was to give students a textbook that would kindle their interest and indeed their enthusiasm for a “small” specialty like ophthalmology and thatwould sustain this enthusiasm all the way through a successful examination.
In an age in which teaching is undergoing evaluation, we felt this was particularly important. In pursuing this admittedly ambitious goal, we were able to draw upon many years of teaching experience.
In ophthalmology, visual diagnosis is the most crucial part of an examination. This handy atlas is designed to help busy clinicians identify clinical signs and symptoms, establish differential diagnoses, and work through complex clinical questions -- efficiently and accurately.
The Pocket Atlas of Ophthalmology features:
* More than 500 photographs, line drawings, and diagrams.
* Precise clinical descriptions of all major disorders.
* Color-coded tabs for easy access.
* Easy-to-follow bulleted lists and flow charts.
* Side-by-side comparison charts for differential diagnosis.
* Succinct overviews of ocular anatomy and physiology.
* Valuable tips and techniques for diagnosis and treatment.
* Chapters on drug side effects and eye diseases in developing countries.
Also useful as a study guide or patient information aid, the atlas also includes a detailed index and numerous cross-references. Compact, durable, and packed with information, this volume slides into any lab coat pocket, making it the ideal clinical companion for all eye care professionals.
They were right all along and those of us who were doubters have learned that lesson and as a result have enhanced the satisfaction we derive from our own careers.

From the history and clinical findings the reader should be able to diagnose and manage or refer common ocular disorders. The history of this textbook began in 1975 with the publication by the American Academy of Ophthalmology of a study guide in outline form for medical students.
The book’s developers identified seven common problem areas in ophthalmology and developed study objectives. Each subsequent edition was changed based on suggestions from users.
The fifth edition, which was developed by the joint committee of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology, abandoned the outline form for chapters with expository text.
The sixth edition, published in 1993, was one of the American Academy of Ophthalmology's most popular clinical education products...
