“Do you always have the latest evidence-based medicine at your fingertips?” This is the challenge posed by Current Clinical Evidence in Ophthalmology (Kugler), edited by Drs Roberts, Gale & Martin.
This book summarises 77 important trials in ophthalmology, offering all the information needed for a clinician to make informed decisions.
Organised by subspecialty (anterior segment, glaucoma, retina, neuro-ophthalmology and paediatric ophthalmology), each section includes the studies judged by the editors to be the most relevant at this time.
Each study is summarised on two pages, with information such as study design, evidence level, aims, methods, results, weakness and “key messages” provided.
The book was designed for busy clinicians and trainees sitting specialist examinations, and could certainly be useful for ophthalmology researchers.
