Editorial Reviews

Doody's Rating: * * *The long-awaited third edition of Spalton's acclaimed "Atlas of Clinical Ophthalmology" is a comprehensive collection of beautiful photographs, illustrations, and well-written, clinically relevant text. The CD-ROM, which enables easy access to digital images, is a welcome addition to this edition, which has been 11 years in the making. This is a gorgeous pedagogic tool that is unmatched in photographic quality and clarity of illustrations. This gem is greatly enhanced by the user-friendly CD-ROM that enables easy incorporation of digital images into presentation formats. It is a "must-have" for any reference shelf.Weighted Numerical Score: 87 "The atlas contains an excellent compendium of clinical pictures, slit-lamp photos, photomicrographs, electron micrographs and illustrations spanning a wide spectrum of ophthalmic topics. A CD-ROM is included with the book and contains not only the illustrations from the atlas, but also useful internet links. ... This atlas is a welcome reference for any ophthalmologist's library." --"Ocular Surgery News", August 1, 2005 "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", review of the previous edition "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 apictorial addition to every clinician's library." - "Clinical & Experimental Optometry", review of the previous edition First edition: Winner of the Abbott Prize for Medical Writing
