Bridges the gap between primary literature and textbook knowledge
Focus on recent developments in subspecialty
Two year interval between complete updates
Indispensable for continuous education and advanced training
The 8 recurring volumes of the "Essentials in Ophthalmology" series cover the most recent developments in one of eight subspecialties in Ophthalmology. With four volumes published per year, each subspecialty is newly visited every 24 months, with a distinct focus on recent developments. By bridging the gap between original research and medical textbooks, the transfer of this developing knowledge into daily practice is greatly enhanced.
Written for: Ophthalmologists in clinical and private practice,
residents, ophthalmologists-in-training, pediatricians, and neurologists
