Review quote

The Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology has been around since 2006 and, in both it first and then second edition form, has quickly established itself as a popular reference source for clinicians to use in practice. Its resilient plasticised cover protects nearly 1,000 pages which cover assessment, identification and management of pretty well the full gamut of ocular and optical problems. Yet it is still easily fitted into a jacket pocket or top drawer, so its always available for that specific information about management or identification. Indeed the newly released third edition is more comprehensive yet, and at 1,100 pages, covers most areas relevant to us all... For price, detail and usefulness in everyday practice, this is the text to have in your consulting room. * Optician online * This particular book is now in its 3rd edition and now updated, it is an impressive production... There is a lot of depth of detail and coverage and despite its thickness (which I think is a positive attribute) it is still very portable and can easily be carried in a case or take up a small amount of space in a desk... Special mention should be made of the excellent web resources for ophthalmologists at the end, which is most useful. * Glycosmedia * For price, detail and usefulness in everyday practice, this is the text to have in your consulting room. * Bill Harvey, opticianonline.net *show more
