If the definition of an atlas is a collection of illustrations, then The University of Miami Bascom Palmer Eye Institute Atlas of Ophthalmology, edited by Richard K. Parrish II, MD, is an atlas-plus—a compendium of salient captions, text lists, and diagrams that further enhance the fine photographs. This is far more than a great picture book.

This atlas has been organized, for the most part, in traditional anatomical-disease groupings or sections (eg, corneal disease and keratorefractive surgery and neuro-ophthalmology). Also included is a helpful introductory section of 7 chapters entitled, "Diagnostic Examination and Testing in Ophthalmology." Seven of the other 8 sections are organized in the traditional manner: "Glaucoma," "Intraocular Tumors," "Intraocular Inflammation," "The Lens," "Vitreoretinal Diseases," "Pediatric Ophthalmology," and "Oculo-plastic Surgery." Each section is composed of the individual chapters that detail the specifics.
