Illustrated Tutorials in Clinical Ophthalmology is a compilation of clinical photographs and key points about various eye diseases. It includes a book and CD-ROM, and it is based on a series of lectures given to ophthalmologists-in-training. The authors' stated goals are to provide a framework for beginning residents and to serve as a source of review. Both of these goals have easily been met.

There are 64 illustrated chapters that represent the breadth of general ophthalmology. All of the chapters are on the CD-ROM, which is considered by the authors to be the more useful of the 2 tools (the reviewer agrees). The book contains only 46 of the 64 chapters and includes the same pictures and diagrams as the CD-ROM for the corresponding chapter. Chapter topics range from eyelash and eyelid disorders, corneal dystrophies, and white dot syndromes, to childhood strabismus, optic neuropathies, and others. Chapters are not num bered, but they have a logical sequence. An index in the book lists the chapter order and designates which are included in the book and which are only on CD-ROM.
