This text is part of the Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Ophthalmology which was developed at Philadelphiaâs famed Wills Eye Institute.Â The beauty of this series is the powerful combination of illustrative photographs and a summary approach to the text.Â While the seven ophthalmic subspecialties in this series, Cornea, Retina, Glaucoma, Oculoplastics, Neuroophthalmology, Pediatrics, and Uveiti, employ varying levels of visual recognition, a relatively standard format for the text is used for all volumes.Â The goal of the series is to provide an up-to-date clinical overview of the major areas of ophthalmology for students, residents, and practitioners in all the healthcare professions.Â
Pediatric Ophthalmology was written in an effort to provide practicing ophthalmologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, and residents in training with a concise update of the clinical findings and the most recent treatment available for a wide spectrum of childhood ocular diseases. The atlas format should provide readers with a clear and succinct outline of the disease entities and stimulate a more detailed pursuit of the specific ocular disorders.Â The book features more thanÂ 150 4-color illustrations throughout and a short, succinct format which includes: Epidemiology and Etiology, History, Physical Examination, Differential Diagnosis, Laboratory and Special Examinations, Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Management.
