Pocket Atlas of Ophthalmology
by Torsten Schlote
Edition: 1st., 2006
Like other medical specialties, ophthalmology undergoes constant enormous development in all its subspecialties. Assembling essential information is therefore an ever-recurring task, which needs to be done in various ways and for various target groups. The specialty of ophthalmology owes its development in recent years to numerous technical innovations. However, these can benefit the patient fully only
when there is comprehensive knowledge of the clinical features of diseases. The primary concern of this pocket atlas is to assist with this.
A pocket atlas of ophthalmology does not and cannot compete with detailed textbooks. However, the special concept of the pocket atlas has
permitted the inclusion of an extraordinarily wide range of illustrations as measured by the overall scope of the book. The up-to-date explanations in the text support these illustrations in a deliberately brief form, as the aim of all the authors involved was to integrate essential
information about all the important diseases of the specialty.
