Essential Medical Ophthalmology will be a welcome
addition for ophthalmologists and internists, as short succinct textbooks
that fill the gap between ophthalmology and medicine are lacking. The book
will be particularly useful to residents or fellows in their final phase of
training as a review prior to their specialist examinations, since the book
assumes a certain amount of basic clinical knowledge. It will also serve as
an excellent reference and summary for general ophthalmologists interested
in systemic medical disorders and for physicians managing systemic conditions
with ocular manifestations.
