New York/Stuttgart – The first edition of Color Atlas of Ophthalmology: The Manhattan Eye Ear & Throat Hospital Pocket Guide is considered a must-have reference for students and medical professionals working with eyes. In the recently released second edition, now subtitled The Quick-Reference Manual for Diagnosis and Treatment, renowned specialists from around the world have come together to contribute to the book, published by Thieme. This fully updated version of the bestselling atlas aims to provide readers with the knowledge they need to confidently face the full range of patients' eye diseases and disorders.

Dr. Amar Agarwal and Dr. Soosan Jacob, editors of the book, worked diligently to develop a streamlined atlas with a systematic format in order to enable readers to instantly locate facts and information, without having to wade through extraneous material. Within 19 chapters the more than 600 images, adeptly utilized by the authors, fully illustrate the 600 eye conditions presented in this book.

"In our field where we necessarily learn, diagnose, and teach visually, top-flight clinical photographs like the hundreds in this book --which are all new to this edition, are essential," states author Dr. Amar Agarwal.

This pocket atlas is a highly useful tool for residents making the rounds or students studying for exams as well as practicing ophthalmologists in need of confirmation regarding an unusual finding or primary physicians in search of a reliable guide to eye disorders.
