The book The Ocular Fundus: From Findings to Diagnosis can be summarized as an excellent resource for ophthalmology residents and ophthalmologists both in their daily clinical work and in studying for examinations. It is written at a basic level yet seems to cover the integral points of its subject matter. The authors have also highlighted important facts on each topic in a separate bulleted list. This is very helpful and accessible because these facts are located within blue stripes at the edge of each page. The book includes all the important topics that may be seen with any frequency in clinical practice. There are high-quality images throughout the text. It is important to note, however, that at 248 pages, this is not a complete retina reference.
