Pocket Tutor Ophthalmology, Third Edition
Shyamanga Borooah, Yong Peng Sim, Mark Wright, Baljean Dhillon
Published: March 2023
Edition: 3/e

Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with ‘on the go’, at a highly-affordable price that puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. 

Topics reflect information needs stemming from today’s integrated undergraduate and foundation courses:

  • Common presentations
  • Investigation options (e.g. ECG, imaging)
  • Clinical and patient-orientated skills (e.g. examinations, history-taking)

The highly-structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the ‘fear factor’ associated with day-to-day clinical training, and provides a detailed resource that students and junior doctors can carry in their pocket.  

Key points

  • New edition features completely updated text, revised diagnostic algorithms, and higher quality photographs and figures
  • Outlines examination techniques, investigation, and management options
  • Clinical scenarios and concise disease descriptions teach clinical decision making and summarise disorders encountered in daily practice
  • Third edition features links to narrated videos to help perfect clinical examination and diagnostic skills
  • Highly-affordable price and convenient pocket-size format
