Ophthalmology at a Glance is a concise textbook written as part of the highly successful at a Glance series. The book follows the classic format of topics laid out in a double page spread, with clear diagrams illustrating the essential information and supporting the main text. This makes learning and understanding a topic more simple and effective.

Ophthalmology at a Glance is written to provide a straightforward and easy-to-use guide for the Ophthalmology course. The introduction includes an overview of the subject and it's sub-specialities, an outline of what exact knowledge and skills medical students need, and covers the social and occupational aspects of vision. History and Examination techniques are followed by the key detail on common problems and diseases.

The book is divided into 13 sections covering:


  • Principles of ophthalmology
  • Ophthalmic History and Examination
  • Correction of Refractive errors
  • Basic Eye Examination
  • Acute ophthalmology
  • Gradual loss of vision
  • Paediatric ophthalmology
  • Eyelid, lacrimal and orbit
  • External eye disease
  • Corneal, refractive and cataract surgery
  • Glaucoma
  • Vitreo-retinal
  • Neuro-ophthalmology

Ophthalmology at a Glance will be extremely useful for medical students as an introduction to this subject area, and an invaluable companion during their attachments. This book is designed to fit into the budget and reading time of busy students, and is ideal as a text that will help them get through their exams successfully. General Practitioners and ophthalmology nurses will also find this text useful to refresh the gaps in their knowledge.

"This is undoubtedly the best I have read and I wish it had been available when I studied ophthalmology. It is clear, concise, and pitched perfectly for medical students.”
Final year medical student (Royal Free Hospital, London)
