This title in the Rapid Diagnosis in Ophthalmology Series presents a wealth of full-color images - along with differential diagnoses - in side-by-side page layouts to assist you in identifying a full range of disorders. A templated format expedites access to the guidance you need to diagnose the most common conditions - from simple to complex - encountered in practice.
Coverage of the key features, diagnostic criteria, and treatment options for Graves Disease, blepharoplasty, fractures, and eyelid tumors equips you with the latest guidance.
Hundreds of full-color images present conditions as they present in real life.
Common diagnostic pitfalls discuss what to look out for when making a difficult diagnosis.
A templated, color-coded layout and differential diagnosis boxes for each condition help you make quick, accurate clinical decisions.
A focus on the most common conditions encountered in practice allows you to efficiently formulate treatment plans and referrals.

This book has been designed to permanently remain as a "companion" in the practitioner's pocket. This purpose is achieved brilliantly. The perfect structure of the book makes information easy to reach within minutes for any topic. The iconography in particular is excellent, providing sharp, high-quality photographs and custom-made, highly pedagogic drawings. The strong feature of this book is that it covers the whole pathology of this highly variable topic. I am confident that this book will be useful for all ophthalmologists starting in oculoplastic surgery, as well as for non-ophthalmologists who may be confronted with this topic.
