Ophthalmology: A Pocket Textbook Atlas is a well-organized, excellent text. This pocket-sized reference atlas is 19 chapters in length and maintains a uniform schematization throughout. Each chapter is divided by color-coded tabs, making reference to specific ophthalmologic sections quite simple. This format is further organized by diagnostic entity, with each chapter divided according to 7 distinct headings per diagnosis. The key headings per diagnosis include definition, epidemiology, etiology, symptoms and diagnostic considerations, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis and clinical course. This format not only allows the reader to quickly access pertinent information, but it provides a comprehensive review of the critical diagnoses in ophthalmology. The organization of the book is clearly a strong point.
