5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 26 Aug. 2004
By M. Stevens - Published on
As an OD student, I have been using this book quite a bit. I love the easy to read format and all of the color photos. It is a small reference book that I can keep in the clinic instead of hauling the large & heavy Kanski around. My only fault is that it is only of the anterior segment. I was wondering if there is a posterior a-z book of the same format? I have searched but haven't been able to find one. Anyone know?
5.0 out of 5 stars A most useful reference! 27 Nov. 2003
By Yota Yoshimitsu - Published on
This book is a succint, but comprehensive, presentation of most of the anterior eye diseases which an optometrist or ophthalmologist may encounter in clinical practice. The A-Z format (rather than the traditional grouping by anatomical location) makes finding entries easier.
It complements similar references such as the Wills Eye Manual, however the excellent photographs are an advantage over the Wills.

It is certainly an excellent learning tool for students, and a very useful chairside reference for practising clinicians. Highly recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars Really good in office reference! 31 May 2008
By A Wright - Published on
I found this book to be a really good source of info - both as student and now as a working optometrist. It has good, concise descriptions and the 2-page layout per condition is excellent. The photos are really good for explaining diseases to patients in-office. Easy to look up what you need due to the A-Z scale on the side. This is a book you will actually use in your career. Highly recommended!!
