    Some of the best clinical teaching happens during grand rounds, imaging conferences and the discussion of individual cases, but for ophthalmologists working in smaller centres, such opportunities can be infrequent. Handbook of Retinal Disease offers the benefit of a case discussion by describing retinal disorders through real-life examples, from a presenting problem through the differential diagnosis, an analysis of the imaging and other diagnostic results, to an outline treatment plan. The book features over 80 cases, each presented with a table of signs and symptoms to help with the differential diagnosis, questions to ask the patient and relevant imaging to order. Secondly, imaging results from relevant modalities are discussed, before a final diagnosis is put forward. The authors provide concise information on the diagnosis, including an outline of recommended treatments, each one tailored to individual patients and reflecting the complex nature of some cases; follow-up and further reading. With its high quality images and highly structured, deductive approach, this second edition provides a clinically relevant guide to the latest imaging techniques used in the diagnosis of retinal diseases: OCT, colour and red fundus photography, fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography and fundus autofluorescence.
