    Ophthalmology is a highly specialized field with complex conditions and a wide range of practitioners. This book provides an overview of clinical ophthalmology using the visually driven "mindmaps" format, a tool that summarizes topics with a logical pictorial structure to aid in memory retention.

    With Mindmaps in Ophthalmology, clinicians can obtain information quickly, following pathways in each subsection of a topic. They are able to select the levels at which the mindmap divisions remain relevant to them, while still maintaining an overall picture that is often lost in textbooks or atlases. The practitioner is always able to put history, examination, diagnosis, and treatment in context. Suitable for medical students, ophthalmology trainees, orthoptists, optometrists, general practitioners and other health professionals, this rapid revision tool is an ideal companion when used in conjunction with a textbook for further elaboration on topics.
