Arch Ophthalmol. 1999;117(5):705. doi:

The stated purpose of this very good, quick reference is "to present concise, useful information on a broad range of ophthalmic disorders, and to direct this information to a wide audience." This is a daunting task.

For residents, such a book would be an invaluable companion while evaluating patients in the emergency department and in the clinic. The ideal book would have a short, to-the-point discussion of relatively common disorders and signs/symptoms that would allow the reader to initiate the most appropriate and cost-effective initial evaluation and treatment, leaving the less pressing subtleties to larger texts. This book generally succeeds at this task.
