Review Quotes
Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology, Volume 42, Issue 3 --"In a beautiful and well-organized new atlas, well-known pediatric ophthalmologist Alex Levin and Thomas Wilson remind us of the power of the eye exam, and the helpfulness of a "spot" diagnosis. Part I discusses common and typical pediatric eye disorders categorized by anatomic location, each accompanied by a concise and helpful paragraph providing many suggestions as to what the pathology may be. The strabismus, ROP, and retinoblastoma sections are particularly helpful. In a busy pediatric hospital or eye clinic, this unique collection of photos of kid's diseases would be extremely useful to leaf through when conferring with pediatricians and family physicians. Consultations for completely benign entities that are often confused with more serious diseases could therefore be avoided. The photos of leukemic retinal lesions are spectacular, and the section on child abuse is well presented. I strongly recommend that this atlas be acquired and used by all medical students and ophthalmology and pediatric residents. All medical professionals will deal with vision or the eye at some point in their training or career. This atlas should be part of every pediatric eye clinic and emergency room. I congratulate the editors and writers on a superb job." -- Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology
