Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with “on the go”. Their highly affordable price represents great value for those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Highly structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the fear factor associated with day to day clinical training, and provides “just enough” for a new rotation. Ophthalmology receives little teaching time in the medical curriculum, so students often feel ill prepared to deal with eye problems - which are invariably urgent in nature. Logical, sequential content: relevant basic science; an introduction to the clinical essentials of ophthalmology practice; then chapters devoted to common disorders. Descriptions of common disorders enhanced by Clinical Scenarios (Patient presents with...) which help students and trainees to recognise and manage common presenting problems.
