Ophthalmology is one of the most visual of medical specialties, where the use of colour is extremely important, and clinical signs and symptoms have a bigger part to play in diagnosis than in many other medical areas. This book presents a complete visual catalogue of all clinical signs and symptoms in ophthalmology. Unlike any other publication, it is organized anatomically, rather than by disease, for ease of use. It presents fully comprehensive coverage of all clinical conditions organized by region, starting with the front of the eye and working through to the retina in a very logical manner. Following the eleven regionally-organized chapters, there are two further chapters on squint and systemic syndromes. The text is presented in a very readable and concise format, and is augmented with nearly 2000 full colour clinical photographs of the highest quality. Virtually every condition is illustrated. "Ophthalmology: Clinical Signs and Differential Diagnosis" provides an outstanding aid to clinical decision making.
Ophthalmologists will use the book to match conditions seen in the clinic, and it will also be an ideal revision aid for the Board and Fellowship examinations in ophthalmology. The book will also be an extremely useful reference for all optometrists.
