The Atlas of Clinical Ophthalmology combines the highest-quality colour photographs, clinical descriptions and explanatory line drawings to provide an outstanding and accessible visual reference of ocular disease and its clinical signs.

The book systematically covers examination, investigation and diagnosis of all the common and many of the rarer ophthalmic disorders. Illustrations of the embryology, histology, pathology and systemic diseases are included as appropriate to elucidate the clinical information. The new edition has been exhaustively updated throughout, with over 1000 new illustrations, many chapters written by new contributors and new, up-to-the-minute information on refractive surgery and LASIK.

From the reviews of the second edition

"It is a bounty of superbly chosen photographs.... this atlas is unsurpassed in its representational clarity.... A definite visual feast, this book is a prize for any bookshelf." (American Journal of Ophthalmology)

"The authors are superb teachers, and the book is an excellent educational medium." (Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Annual)

"It is always easy to find criticism of a book is one looks hard enough. In this book it seems pointless... it is a superb atlas and I strongly recommend it as a pictorial addition to every clinician's library." (Clinical and Experimental Optometry)
