"The book provides an introduction to the anatomy of the eye and the ophthalmic exam, as well as overview of many ophthalmic emergencies. There are many high-quality glossy photos. Ocular infections and trauma are particularly well-covered. This is a well-written overview of ophthalmology directed at the general practitioner. There are outstanding photographs of diseased eyes that highlight key features of urgent eye disease and useful clinical pearls. 3 Stars."-- Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2002-12-01)From the Back Cover:
