Essentials in Ophthalmology is a new series covering all of ophthalmology categorized in eight subspecialties. It will be published quarterly, thus each subspecialty will be reviewed biannually.
Given the multiplicity of medical publications already available, why is a new series needed? Consider that the half-life of medical knowledge is estimated to be around 5 years. Moreover, it can be as long as 8 years between the first description of a medical innovation in a peer-reviewed scientific journal and publication in a medical textbook. A series that narrows this time span between journal and textbook will provide a more rapid and efficient transfer of medical knowledge into clinical practice, and enhance care of our patients. Further, since each section is covered on a regular interval, the general ophthalmologist is regularly informed about the new developments in each subspecialty. Last but not least, each of these reader-friendly volumes is highly structured with core messages, summaries, tables, diagrams and illustrations and written by internationally well-known experts in the field. Thus this series will be of high value for all ophthalmologists in clinical and private practice, residents and ophthalmologists-in-training.
