This latest edition of the Ophthalmology Color Guideseries strives to provide a comprehensive pictorial overview with explanatory text for each group of photographs on the opposite page and an easy index format for quick referencing. The strength of this pocket guide is the high-quality color photographs, especially those of external and anterior segment disease. Hopefully, future editions will include more clinical photographs, without the red-free filter, of retinal white dot syndromes, such as multiple evanescent white dot syndrome, and melanocytoma of the optic nerve head. The price, layout, and excellent quality of the photographs make this a bargain for medical students and residents, particularly since so much of ophthalmology is recognizing what you see.
