DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Allison Ramsey Soneru, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)

Description

This is an update of a book of pearls for the diagnosis, workup, and management of various ophthalmic conditions. The second edition was published in 2007.

Purpose

The book's simple format highlights only the salient facts for each entity, making it most appropriate as a reference that does not attempt to comprehensively explain any particular disease.

Audience

This is a good resource for general ophthalmologists (or for ophthalmology residents and fellows) to use as a quick reference.

Features

The book lists disease entities in alphabetical order, and for each disease it provides, on the left-hand page, a definition, symptoms, signs, and any relevant investigations for the purposes of diagnosis. On the right-hand page, it describes standard treatment options, both pharmacological and nonpharmacological. The layout is consistent, and the pictures are high quality. The complications and pearls on each entity are very helpful.

Assessment

As a guide to many common ophthalmic diseases, this book is similar to The Wills Eye Manual 6th edition, Gerstenblith and Rabinowitz (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012), but it has more pictures and explores some diseases that are not included in Wills, such as AMPPE (acute multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy). It would be a good supplement to Wills for general ophthalmologists, but it overlaps with it quite a bit as well. The alphabetical arrangement of the diseases and the layout (continuation of the diagnosis on the next left-hand page instead of on the subsequent page) make it slightly more difficult to use, but it does do a good job of standardizing the layout.
