This beautifully illustrated and concise textbook of direct ophthalmoscopy is intended for medical students and is distributed to them without charge. However, it can be read with enjoyment and profit by a far wider audience, including general physicians, residents in other specialties, and even beginning ophthalmology residents. It is an exceptional collection of photographs, crisply printed and covering a wide spectrum of diseases and abnormalities. The accompanying text is well organized, clear, and appropriately brief.
In most medical schools, required curriculum time devoted to ophthalmology is limited. This book should provide an exciting introduction to our specialty. Some students will be stimulated to study the eye further. Others will be more skilled ophthalmoscopists as they enter other disciplines.
