Intended for medical and health science students, this book is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and structured text, while the right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs. This book is pocket sized, and therefore is useful for quick preparation before ward rounds.
"In Focus Ophthalmology" is aimed at all medical and health science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated guide to this specialty. The material is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management; prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs. "Ophthalmology In Focus" is a convenient pocket size and therefore ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds. Each volume also includes self-assessment material, which is extremely helpful for preparation for examinations. Because of shorter hospital stays and more outpatient treatment, students are less likely to be able to see the full range of conditions on the ward - the books in this series help supply that deficit.

"The In Focus series are useful 'trigger texts' i.e. they give enough information so that you want to read further or continue your learning on the internet. The colours have been used nicely, with realistic print colours of patients, instruments and slides. The set out of the books are ideal with good, quick reference contents, making the series ideal for students in Clinics and/or ward rounds." Medical Student, UK, January 2005
It is pleasing to stumble upon an ophthalmology book that is...as user-friendly as a 'Crash Course'. The 'In Focus' book benefits from both its accessible approach and inclusion of several peri-orbital conditions, which link in well to general medicine. Medical Student, MAD Magazine, the official journal of Barts and The London Students' Association
